Upcoming workshops & Classes



Mosaics. Saturday 12th October 10.30am-1.00pm. £25 + £10-£12 (depending on A% or A4 plaque) in cash for materials. With Sarah Camplin.

In this workshop you will be provided with a wooden base, tiles, beads, broken china, shells and PVA glue to create your mosaic.
After choosing your base you will then discuss as a group some design ideas and be assisted in the motif or subject of your design. This could be anything from a colourful pattern, to a house number plate, or even a portrait of a pet or person. You can be advised on which colours to use for your piece.
The tutor will assist you in cutting the tiles safely, and afterwards in sticking the tiles, broken china, beads and shells to the base. When finishing up, you will be given advice on how to grout your piece.

Painting Watercolour Flowers. Saturday 19th October 10.30am-4.00pm. £40 + own materials. With Stephen Goulding.
The course will be aimed at both beginners and those with some experience of using the medium of watercolour.
