OUR HOME, OUR PATCH-FREE creative workshops
August 19 @ 11:30 am - 3:30 pmFree
Want to try a variety of multimedia creative skills?
Have your say, learn about, and take climate action?
Join Artist Lauren Heckler and Poet Emma Beynon for two days of creative adventure at Oriel Davies Gallery. You don’t need to see yourself as creative, just bring your enthusiasm and opinions.
Together we will explore the things that matter to you through up cycling, poetry, drawing, character design, costume, and video. It will be a great opportunity for you to learn new skills and craft your ideas into something new. There will be lots of materials and stationery for you to play with!
