Young Archives - EAU Brink Studio


.  We are Opening again on Saturday 4th July for our first Post Covid-19 workshop at Eau Brink Studio.

This workshop is a little different to our usual line up.

Diamond Art Taster Day by Dawns Gems is a two hour taster class. Dawn will provide kits for all the family to try their hand at Diamond art. Dawn will be with us for a morning class commencing at 10 am. And then an afternoon class commencing at 2pm.

Our class numbers will be a maximum of 10 at this moment in time. However, if we are able to increase them nearer the time we will do.

It will be even better if we can move it to outside but that will of course depend on the weather.

So What is this Diamond Art then?

Diamond Art is a craft that includes a pre printed picture with glue already on it ready for you to place small coloured crystals in place. Once the picture is completed you can frame it before hanging it in your home.

Each kit comes with a stylus to help you pick up the diamonds and a small amount of putty to help them stick to the stylus before placing onto the picture or household item.

Dawns Gems keeps a good stock of items for all budgets. Dawn likes to keep up with the current new items being brought out by her suppliers which means her stock is changing all the time to keep you busy.

Keeping Safe While we are open again.

During this uncertain time we are living in we are asking visitors to the studio to keep to some new rules. I am sure you all know what I am going to ask of you but I have to ensure you are aware.

Please do wash your hand at regular intervals throughout your time in the studio. To ensure your safety I have installed a new soap dispenser with foam antibacterial soap in it. We already use paper towels and I have some hand gel by the door too use on the way in and on the way out.

There are disposable gloves and aprons available but no fabric aprons. Of course you can bring your own to use.

You can if you feel you want to use your own face masks or face visors or shields.

Please be considerate to others when coming in and out of the studio keeping your distance.  If you need any help with your equipment I can help you unload your car and will wear gloves to do so. Please let me know if you will need any help at the time of booking. If you are unsure please do call or email before booking.

When in the studio we will only have up to 10 persons at any one time until we are told we can increase the numbers but sometimes I may limit the numbers to 6 or 8 depending on what we are working on.  With this in mind I do need you to book in through the booking system so I can monitor numbers.

I ask you to place all cups, glasses, plates and cutlery into the dishwasher once you have finished with it. That way I can just put it on when the class has finished.

The Tables will be covered with a disposable covering which will be changed between classes.

And Finally

It is important that to me that you enjoy your time at Eau Brink Studio once we open again, so please do let me know if we can help you in any way before, during and after a workshop.

Colour Therapy Family Time at Eau Brink Studio today.

What on earth does that mean I hear you say?

As a family it can be hard to all get together to do something that can encourage creativity. Something that the entire family can do.

Today a family came to Eau Brink Studio to work with colour. The tricky bit is working out your personal colours. Once done it is just a case of using them to create texture and line using a variety of implements.

 

 

The youngest member of today’s group was 10 years old who became very excited when she realised that just by taking a rubbing and washing it over with a gold ink you can create something beautiful. we also had teenagers and parents. It was a fabulous day watching the nervousness disappear as they became involved in the art.

 

Some of it was drawing, some painting. We had textures with printing and stitching free motion for the first time. A spectacular result on the sewing machine. Just goes to show what can be done with an very old Bernina and a little imagination.

 

 As you can see this is a very talented family. This drawing took a while as the young lady wanted to ensure she managed to get her drawing to look proportionate.

For one so young it is a great piece.

 By the afternoon they entire family had managed to get a number of pieces finished. I love the colours in the eye.

Mum and Dad worked through a number of different ideas ranging from printing to watercolours. All with brilliant results.

Looking forward to the next Colour Therapy Family Time  just to see what they turn out.
