Workshops start in August

Workshops start in August …..

Although the renovation work is not yet complete or that we have a full programme of events, we really wanted something this year.  What we have managed is a series of workshops giving a small taster of things to come.

We also want guest artists so If you are a creative and would like to run a workshop for next year do get in touch.

Over winter I will be busy not only finishing shed renovations but booking a full schedule of events and workshops and a of course a proper launch Party.

For now what we are doing

  • A series of Creativ8 workshops run by art teacher Mel Bennett.  These will be introductory lessons to different art techniques.  Perfect if you are just starting out or would like to learn.
  • Therapeutic Art, run by Becky Booth.  These workshops will exploring the therapeutic value of art and how to use it to de stress unwind and improve your general sense of well being.
  • Free Drop Ins & Wombling Fun.  Open to all no set programme its just about getting creative.  Either take part on one of the art hub projects or bring your own or get some ideas.
  • Kids Fun, run by me, Kate.  Workshops for the summer holidays that will also become  an after schools club during term time. We will be starting the Wombles club, having Messy Art, and in general lots of fun.  We have a few spaces where children over 8 can be ‘ Parent Free ‘. Kate is fully CRB checked and has a background in working with children as a youth worker, teaching assistance and working for social services.  Its all a little spontaneous this year but that is all part of the fun.
  • Learning to Look.  This workshop is also run by me.  suitable for all ages and in particular to those that think they do not have a creative bone in their body, because you do lots of them.  We will go for a walk and look at what’s around us. looking at colour, shape, patterns, textures and details that normally you may have missed.  Then we will go back to the studio and put some of what we’ve seen into your very own piece of creation, whether a picture, collage, sculpture.  Let what you have seen guide you.
