Workshops

As part of our programme we run a range of workshops.

From extreme textiles through to ceramics and drama.

 

Adults Introduction To A Creative Journey

We held an introduction workshop for the adults of participating children.

Adults learned to take creative risks, experiment and to question how it made them feel in order to stand in the shoes of their child.

The intention is that this helps start the creative journey with it's best foot forward and helps ensure an adults support for their participating child.

Adults were introduced to a few different printing techniques with no requirement for aptitude or talent- just a willingness to participate. We focused on flowers as a common theme and made sure we had colour and different materials that everyone could have a go with and a broad range of artists to look at as examples of styles used- from Georgia O' Keeffe to Howard Hodgkin. 

Interested in seeing what the children do?

 

Ceramics Workshop

We looked at artists that use ceramics

We went on to learn some clay techniques and work on our own creations.

Textiles Workshop

Experimenting with Block Print & Weaving.

We looked at inspirational textile artists

And also learnt some techniques to create our own work.

Tile making

A small workshop with children trying out a few clay techniques and then painting with acrylic paint (with a top coat of waterproof varnish).

The children chose what they would make their tiles about and how they painted them.

What happened in their brains?

  • Mastery - techniques with clay

  • Communication- discussing and deciding what their work would focus on.

  • Relaxation- their happy hormone seratonin was raised during the  workshop through focusing on an activity and the joy of mastering a new skill.
