Art for the Curious with Jayne Blacklock
Thursday’s 10.00am – 12.00pm | Free (Pay What You Decide)
Everyone is born with the ability to draw and paint but sometimes, somewhere along the line, some of us begin to believe that we can’t. This is a series of adult workshops looking at using a range of mediums and techniques to create your own artwork. From pencil, charcoal, soft pastel and paint, you will be guided through how to use each one to explore a range of subjects, giving you confidence and skills to then produce your own work.
Sessions are free but a ‘Pay What You Decide’ donation is welcome towards materials and resources.
Sessions are currently full, but we have a short waiting list for new participants. Please contact us to be added.
Monday 13 February and 6 March, 12noon – 3.00pm | Free
We will be hosting free drop-in contact sessions for Veterans and members of the Armed Forces and Blue Light Community, with different themes and activities at each session including:
January: Self care and meditation
February: Flower arrangements for Valentine’s Day
March: Complementary therapy tasters
These wellbeing sessions enable the community to manage emotions, by providing a space to chat with like-minded people, through activities and workshops aimed at improving mental health, with discussions introduced by Through a Soldiers’ Eyes project and exhibition legacy.
Coder Dojo children’s coding sessions
First Saturday of the month, 2.00pm – 4.00pm | Free
Code is the language of computers, including those in phones, cars, and even in lightbulbs! Learning to code is learning to talk to computers in their native language.
Coding and digital creation are invaluable skills these days, and understanding how computers work and how to interact with them will open up lots of opportunities for you.
