Young textilers can book into the studio each Friday for a different experience each week for the six week holiday period. We will be covering sketchbook work, which entails creating a sketchbook using mixed media which may or may not include drawing skills, making fabrics from found items, a Process called lamination which helps you to transfer pictures onto fabric, how to make a book from paper and fabric and lastly a little bit of felting.
Each Wednesday from the 8th of August the younger children can come along and be inspired to create fantastic art from 10am till 2pm. Parents can drop children off from 09.45. and collect between 2pm and 2.30. Refreshments are provided along with materials.
