These classes have come from ideas Robyn developed for the Art Play Course. In ArtPlay, there's lots of art and a bit of word play. In WordPlay it's the other way around. You will need to take a small leap of faith and be prepared to play, as you enter this world where there will be random acts of creativity, and you’ll be the one making them.
Requirements: Most materials are included. To get the most from this class you may be asked to gather and bring some items from home. We'll be in touch before class.
Tutor: Robyn Steel-Stickland (aka "Mrs Opendrawer") is our joint founder, and the warm beating heart of our arty crafty makery goodness. An experienced art tutor, and the author of Felt: Irresistably Beautiful Projects, Robyn has a particular gift for teaching techniques which encourage you to explore and expand your creative horizons.
