Idea behind the workshops
The small workshops have been designed and created to be welcoming and allow people the freedom to experiment with ideas, materials and techniques.
They are not formal and you do not have to have experience just a willingness to have a go.
If you have a desire and enthusiasm to learn how to draw, paint, do clay work or sculpture or to develop your ideas in fabric or mixed media then please come along. A donation for the use of materials is all that is required.
“I like coming to the workshop because I want to be creative – and working with clay is fun.” Shirley
Informal meetings are held at Belinda’s house each month to share ideas, progress on projects, visits and engage in small practical work.
