Event Information

Create a miniature garden using paper and a range of textiles techniques and materials.

What will you learn on this course?

Join us on this fun one-day workshop where children will learn how to create a mixed media, miniature garden. We will begin by making drawings taking inspiration from plants and flowers. Participants will then use paper and a range of specialist textiles techniques to create a garden scene. Some of the techniques covered in this workshop include applique techniques, padding, embroidery stitches, simple transfer printing and sewing.

Everyone will leave with their miniature garden artwork to take home and show off to their family and friends.

Who is this course for?

This course is suitable for children aged 6 to 11 years. It is open to all ability levels and children don’t need previous experience. Parents are not expected to accompany children on these courses. All our staff are DBS checked.

The course is accessible for children of all abilities who can participate in practical art and craft activities. We provide a learning support worker and a parent or carer may assist their child if additional support is required. Carers must book a complimentary ticket if attending a course to provide support. The room is wheelchair accessible.

Age ranges are set carefully to take into account key age developments, materials being used and course stimulus. It is very important that age ranges are not too large or across key stages and therefore need to be adhered to.

Do you need to bring anything?

Children need to bring their own lunch to eat on a supervised one hour break. All course materials and equipment are provided.

Children should dress appropriately as some of the visual art workshops can get a bit messy

Are there any additional costs?
