I find myself holding arts workshops for children on alternate Saturdays – sharing interests and (hopefully) inspiring creative activity in young children. Aside from being mildly nerve wreaking, messy and involving a lot of glitter and sparkly bits – the unexpected positives from these workshops are the alternative view on my own practice. Our last session, using nature to make decorative surfaces and collages – think leaves, pressed flowers and seeds – the remains found their way back to my studio, new casting experiments are in early stages.
Communicating, sharing, exciting, learning (this happens on both sides).
The next one is on the 27th October, and they continue on every second Saturday until Christmas at Drummuir Ice Cream Parlour, Dumfries – for under tens. Contact me for details!
