PAINTING SWEARY PEBBLES
Join the mischief with Artist Sarah McFloof in this workshop painting ceramic pebbles with sassy strokes. Design and paint your unique pebble letting the colours and cheekiness flow freely. Take your masterpiece home to use as personal mood-lifter or a surprise gift for a friend.
Be led by Double Elephant in a giant collaborative print – using colourful rubber stamps and screenprints we’ll be making a huge natural world banner. Colourful teeming undersea worlds and beautiful gardens full of flowers. Make your own stamps and join the collaboration or print your own to take home.
Explore the sometimes messy medium of charcoal with Richard Rochester. From complete beginners to more accomplished artists wishing to gain deeper mastery of charcoal as a medium, Richard will demystify the subject and encourage you to experiment.
