COASTAL ART
Jan's Craft Workshops - 2016
.........................................................................................................................................................

 

All mixed media workshops will be in small groups of no more than 6, giving flexibility to extend
regular attendees and support beginners.

The workshops are based on the use of clay, wood, metal & stone to explore coastal themes
(you are welcome to bring other materials). Most materials are provided, there will be a small fee for
certain elements but many students enjoy incorporating their own coastal finds into their piece.

Workshops are 3 sessions long on the same day of each week which allows for
the clay to dry and kiln firings. Each session is 3 hours long with coffee on arrival and refreshments
mid-morning or afternoon.

A typical mixed media workshop will involve the following………….
Week 1 – (3 Hours) Design & Wet clay work, please bring an apron, it can get messy!
Week 2- (3 Hours) Glaze work
Week3- (3 Hours) Assembling with beachcombings and found objects
(NB Boulder Stack/ Table top workshop is one day including lunch)

Venue - Rose Cottage, Delling Lane, Bosham, Chichester PO18 8NR
