Creative Book Making Workshop
This course will cover basic book binding techniques and an exploration of contemporary book making styles suitable for anyone interested in making books. In the classes we will explore the creative application of traditional and non–traditional materials to the book format, as well as sculptural aspects of artist books.

Painting is one of the most rewarding ways to express yourself artistically, and this course will explore the medium of acrylic paint, a medium which is both flexible and durable.
This class is suited to both beginners and for people with some experience in painting. During the course we will work on different skills, methods and techniques, such as perspective, colour mixing and paint application.
Our subject matter will include landscape, still life and portraiture, and we will look at other famous artists’ work for inspiration and exciting ideas.
Students of this class will benefit and grow from getting individual support and tuition and they will be encouraged to develop their own personal style.
