Feel Connected Creatively

While we can’t come together in person at the moment, art can help us stay feeling connected, creative and calm.

So while our doors at pitchblue are closed we’d love you to take part one or more of our online courses & projects.

We are pleased to announce our new online courses …

Paper Play Day – zoom workshop

Saturday 15th August 10:00 – 12:30
£40 – includes zoom workshop, tutor support and materials 

Explore and experiment with colour and techniques to create a unique range of decorative papers. 

Use the resulting papers as a starting point for a painting or a design, or use in collage work. 

We will show you techniques you can explore and develop to create your own finished pieces of work. 

You will discover many possibilities and start to combine ideas and so develop your own, individual style.
