Painting, Graffiti & Screen printing - BOOK NOW

Step into Banksy’s shoes and go wild with paint. Experiment with spray paints (non aerosols) large brushes and stencils and transform ideas onto a fake wall, but be careful don't get caught! Have fun painting on different surfaces including acetate and board. Using the screen you will print with stencils and build up colour and abstract patterns and interesting tonal effects will appear. We love the freedom of this class.

Tues / Thurs / Sat 10-12pm /1-3pm.  All day - 1-3pm on Tues / Wed / Thurs / Sat


Creative Journaling – BOOK NOW

In this workshop children will learn how to make images for a book or journal using images by experimenting with techniques such as layering, paper folding, stamping and building up textures.. They will use various materials including packaging, labels, & paper sourced from all over the world to create vintage styles. This workshop is particularly good for mental well-being and focus and promotes a sense of calm.

Tues / Thurs / Sat 10-12pm /1-3pm.  All day - 1-3pm on Tues / Wed / Thurs / Sat


Wire 3d Sculpture - BOOK NOW

Kids love this workshop so early booking is recommended. Using colourful and shiny wires kids learn to manipulate wire into all shapes and interesting creations. This is an engaging workshop where they are able to try something new and improve their hand eye coordination. I have seen animals, sea urchins, human figures and even a flipflop!

Tues / Thurs / Sat 10-12pm /1-3pm.  All day - 1-3pm on Tues / Wed / Thurs / Sat


Indigo and Eco Leaf Printing
BOOK NOW

This is a practical workshop where children use the combination of objects with natural dyes to create interesting and diverse prints onto cloth. The prints range from delicate patterns through to intricate coverings of deep reds, rich orange tones and earthy browns. Abstract patterns and geometric shapes are created using Japanese Shibori folding techniques.  Objects are wrapped tightly in cotton cloth to create a parcel. When unwrapped the parcels reveal abstract markings on the cloth. This process is fun and easy to do. Children squeal with delight when unwrapping the parcels and seeing their images for the first time and love the surprise element to this technique.

Tues / Thurs / Sat 10-12pm /1-3pm.  All day - 1-3pm on Tues / Wed / Thurs / Sat
