SCULPTURAL NEEDLEFELT - WHIMSICAL WREATHS
Friday 1 to Monday 4 December 2023
Make a couple of Whimsical Wreaths for Christmas, decorated with needlefelted characters. These decorations will be wired and poseable – with the idea that the wreaths can be taken apart after Christmas and the characters recycled for another year, or used as tree or table decorations.

ESSENTIAL DRAWING SKILLS: MARK MAKING AND MATERIALS
Wednesday 6 to Friday 8 December 2023
Develop or improve your essential drawing skills through understanding the many ways in which ‘line’ and ‘mark making’ may be used in drawing. We will look at the different ways artists have used line and experiment with different media during the course. This hop-on, hop-off series aims to gently embed, refresh and refine the foundation skills for being a fine artist. Each is observational rather than working from photos.
