Arty/crafty 2018 Workshops

Playing with Polyfilla and other mixed media materials ~ Tina Bettison

Sunday July 8
11am – 4pm
Places limited to 6 people
No experience necessary

Would you like to explore your creative side but convinced you aren’t any good at ‘art’? Or maybe you’ve been to lots of art classes but you’d like to try something a bit different and more free flowing?

Come and have a go at with a variety of mixed media mediums including Polyfilla, modelling paste, gels, foil flakes and more much. Explore and discover different textures and colours and, frankly, just play to your heart’s content.

This is less of a ‘how to’ workshop and more of a discovery workshop. Tina will show you how she creates some of her textured artworks and the materials she uses. There is no pressure for you to produce a piece of finished artwork – although you are welcome to do that. Play is the name of the game here!

Cost £45; including all materials for use on the day, plus light refreshments. Please bring your own lunch – or visit one of the lovely cafes in Southwell for sustenance.

Maybe you think you’re not creative,  or maybe you need a bit of inspiration, or maybe you just want to create but have no idea where to begin…  creative journaling is a great way to explore without any pressure to produce. It’s a great way to capture thoughts, feelings, ideas; a place to capture your travels, memories, treasured moments or to explore who you are and what you feel passionate about.

In this workshop we’ll be using specific prompts (questions and statements) to respond to. There will be free writing exercises (really easy ones!) and lots of cutting, sticking, pasting and a bit of painting. It’s a bit like creating a collage of your soul.

A fresh new journal will be supplied for you to create in (you are welcome to bring your own too), and all the materials you will need – including paints, pens, pencils, magazines for clipping, etc. You’ll have a dressing up box of crafty bits and bobs to dive into!

Cost £45; including an A4 spiral bound sketchbook to take away and all materials for use on the day, plus light refreshments. Please bring your own lunch – or visit one of the lovely cafes in Southwell for sustenance.
