    If you’re fascinated by street art and printmaking, this exciting 1-day workshop is for you.

    You won’t need any experience to enjoy this course, which is designed for beginners.
    In a fun-packed day you’ll design and create your own multi-layered stencil poster under the guidance of acclaimed stencil artist Tiera Boo.

    Using a range of source imagery for inspiration, you’ll begin to sketch out your design, working with Tiera to develop your ideas. As you work, Tiera will introduce you to the stunning work of local and international street artists.

    Next, you’ll print and hand-cut your stencil, then spray paint your base design onto high quality art paper. Learning from Tiera’s expertise, you’ll add dimension to your poster design by layering text, pattern and render.

    By the end of the day, you’ll have your own unique street-art inspired poster to take home.

    Class size: maximum 10

    Get an introduction to wheel-throwing and the wonderful medium of clay in this fun evening workshop.

    You don’t need any prior knowledge of ceramics to enjoy this 2.5 hour session. Your experienced tutor will give you step-by-step introductions on how to create your very own hand-thrown vessel using the wheel.

    You’ll then get to decorate your creation using a variety of surface techniques, and apply tinted underglazes to give it colour, texture and dimension.

    Your fired work will be available for collection approximately 4 weeks after the workshop.

    This short affordable workshop is a great opportunity to try out ceramics before committing to one of our longer beginner term courses.
