The End of the Academic Year is upon us and that means the holidays are just around the corner. The fun starts for the children but for the parents this can be a problem with childcare.

I have planned a series of workshops for children over the summer break to enlighten and fire the imagination with practical art workshops.

On a Wednesday the younger children can come and play with paint and mixed media including Powertex.

Learning art can take many forms from mark making to creating 3D objects using found materials and the children will get to experience all forms of art during the five week available to them.

All Saints Ladies

On Fridays the older children can come and learn how to sew, create and be an artist by building a portfolio of work and techniques ready for the new academic year.

Over the six week period the young learners will learn how to use a sewing machine for both creative and constructive projects. How to felt fibres, create backgrounds in a sketchbook, and how to create substrates for new projects from different materials including man made fibres.

For more information go to https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/event/young-textilers 

 

What else is new?

Children’s Parties.

For three hours your child can explore the world of art and crafts. The party can be theme specific or materials led. For example, a Powertex party can include the children making a Powertex animal or fish. Or a jar or box for their bedroom. A theme can be the circus or  under the sea where the children will get to create a piece of art using different materials to great affect. It is amazing what can be achieved with just using found materials like sweet wrappers and plastic.  The older children may want to make jewellery or fridge magnets.

So whats included in the cost? A buffet meal consisting of children’s favourites such a little sausages, Pizza, sausage rolls, Sandwiches and little cakes. Parents can supply a birthday cake for the day. Your child will receive a book of memories for the party. Each child will be given a page to make and photographs will be taken of the party. I will then make this into a book for your child.

For more information on parties or any of the other items in this news page pleas do not hesitate to contact me by email at [email protected], or by phone on 01553 762115. If you leave me a message I will return your call usually withing two days.
