Creative Design Workshops

Suitable for beginners and not at all scary!

Aim of the workshops:

  • Learning to think creatively “Think Out of the Box”.
  • To provide a springboard encouraging women to explore how they value and select recycled materials, items no longer in use or too readily discarded.
  • Encourage women to generate their own creative ideas and challenge them to transform these materials into their own individual piece of artwork.

Skills used will include:

  • Using a variety of different recycled, found or unusual materials to compose and create a design concept.
  • Making design decisions regarding concept, construction and techniques.
  • Explore shape and colour relationships, learning how to make a composition work by investigating texture, scale and use of materials.
  • Learning how to pull the ‘Whole Thing’ together to create an overall pleasing piece.
  • Exploring the potential regarding other recycled resources and opening possibilities to further develop and transform these ideas.

Please bring a range of recycled objects with you on the day, things you may like to consider incorporating into an art piece.

Dates of the courses are:

  • Sunday 25th October, 10-4
  • Sunday 8th November, 10-4
  • Sunday 15th November, 10-4
