Create your own beautiful framed picture from locally collected beach finds – sea glass, pottery, driftwood and other bits and bobs found along the Jurassic Coast beaches. Have fun, experiment, play and create, and at the end of the workshop you will have your own sea glass picture to take home and enjoy!
Sea glass is incredibly tactile. Be inspired by the colours and shapes, let go of all your ‘this isn’t for me’ and ‘I can’t do it’ and spend a couple of relaxing hours (re)connecting to your creativity in the company of other adults. As ‘grown-ups’ we can forget to make time for creative expression, and this workshop provides a gentle and fun space for us to play. As Picasso said, “Every child is an artist, the problem is staying an artist when you grow up”.
So, this workshop offers you time out, a pause in the busy-ness of life, an act of self care, and time to allow your creativity to find an outlet, in the heart of Lyme Regis by the sea …
If you have a short quote or line from a poem that inspires you, please bring it along, as you may want to include this in your picture. Don’t worry it you don’t – there will be sample pictures, images and my own selection of quotes to offer ideas and get the creative juices flowing.
“Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes and having fun” – Mary Lou Cook
All materials to make your picture, including an 8×8 box frame for you to keep and take home, are included in the workshop price. Refreshments will also be provided.
This workshop is for over 18s only.
