Please note: This event has been postponed due to lockdown. If you have a booking, you will be contacted with a rescheduled date and details.

With all materials included and each workshop suitable for beginners, our Wednesday morning Taste Of... sessions give the perfect introduction to a range of artistic styles and techniques.

Design your own graphic illustrations or patterns using the traditional painting medium of gouache. Using strong flat colours you will be able to create a simple illustration and learn brush techniques such as overlaying paint to enhance your design. Create your very own traditional wood painting to hang as a decoration. If you are stuck for design, don't worry, we can provide a selection of ideas to choose from, alternatively, bring your own sketchbook ideas, but keep it simple!

Suitable For: All abilities.

'Taste of Art' workshops are creative sessions that are friendly, informal and good fun and aim to provide an introduction to a technique or art form. Lasting an hour and a half they are run by qualified tutors and artists and aim to give you an insight into a craft and inspire you to do more.

You don't have to be a creative person to take part as the sessions are aimed at all levels and the focus is on experimentation. Most of our sessions use materials and equipment that are accessible and low cost and we always try to provide ceramic activities that utilise our kiln.

'Taste Of Art' sessions will provide you with an opportunity to make new friends and meet up with other budding creatives.

'Taste of Art' sessions run during the school term and a detailed programme is released on this website.

Please bring an apron.
