About

Monday 15 February: Fabric Fun

Celebrate LGBTQ+ History month together, in this bright, positive, joyful and colourful textile workshop. Talk about affirming visual symbols, learning about why we stand up for people and celebrate love and kindness. 

This is an opportunity to understand the different properties of fabrics, and to learn about colour and building depth, using fabric scraps as your paint palette. Artist Melissa Cooney will guide children to build their textile illustration in layers. She will then instruct adult helpers to fix the fabric to the background and then children will follow her lead on some simple stitching to bring the artwork to life. 

Times:
10.30am - 12.30pm

Tickets:
£10

Wednesday 17 February: Mandalas

With reference to the Mind, Body and Soul theme of LGBTQ+ History month, this is a reflective workshop for young artists wishing to spend time thoughtfully and patiently with different art materials.

Karen from 'Let's Make Art' will demonstrate how to create a unique and personal mandala, using a variety of materials and methods.

The process of making a mandala will manifest mindfulness. Young artists will be inspired by the rhythms and patterns of mandalas as well as a discussion about the origin of these artworks and how they are used for meditation.

This is a great opportunity for younger artists to build on their skills, learning about symmetry, colour and repeat patterns.

Times:
10.30am - 12.30pm

Tickets:
£10

Thursday 18 February: The Art of Taking Away

This workshop, delivered by artist Jessica Bartlett, will explore 'negative space', the term given to describe the spaces between things.

This is a fun way to investigate light and shadow, objects and spaces, things and nothing. You will be guided to cut away, paint out and erase... as a form of destructive creativity!

This workshop is suitable for 7-12 year-olds who would like to explore freedom in mark making and challenging the way we see things. It can be carried out with everyday things that the children will have ready access to. The result will be a special collection of images. 

Times:
10.30am - 12.30pm

Tickets:
£10
