Arts & Crafts Workshops
My workshops vary according to the materials I collect from various sources, including my own garden and charity shops. They can be broken crockery and tiles, unwanted flowerpots, fabrics, glass jars and metal scrap. I also include natural materials such as clay, pebbles, shells, dry flowers, leaves and wood in the mix.
The workshops are designed to give participants a sense of wellbeing while being involved in a creative activity, which can help boosting self-confidence. I emphasize the importance of the creative process rather than the expectance of a 'perfect' outcome. It is also a way to value the materials we constantly throw away but could be used for other purposes and avoid more environmental pollution.
The workshops are suitable for adults or children. There is no need for previous experience or expertise in art.
I can also organize workshops for health and care centres, schools, charity organisations or community events.
Groups: at £45.00 per participant for 2.5 hours. Including materials and light refreshments.
- Six participants
- Location: Irene's Art Studio in Pilgrims Hatch, Brentwood, Essex
