⭐️  Gardening, Woodcraft and Recycling (17/08/2023 – 23/11/2023)

This excellent seasonal, countryside themed course begins on Thursday 8th August at our lovely project in Penkridge. The course looks at “Going Green”, recycling and how we can make a difference ourselves. The course has a focus on well-being, personal development, problem solving and learning new practical skills. On the course you will get involved in team activities and get to take part in practical exercises, in the past we have built raised beds, water features and even bottle greenhouses!

The course runs weekly on a Thursday, completely free and transport is provided for those who need it from two pick up locations (Stafford & Cannock).

Join us on a virtual adventure around Staffordshire, watching us explore different locations to find inspiration for art all while improving your wellbeing and learning new skills. Brilliant for beginners and improvers alike.

We use traditional art mediums such as watercolours to capture scenery, pencils to sketch urban art and inks to print leafs. But excitingly we also explore alternative art such as taking rubbings, creating collages from leaflets and even using mud to paint with!!

The sessions run weekly on a Wednesday starting on the 16th of August at 10am running until the 11th of October. The learning hours required to complete the course are flexible and can be covered to suit you during that week, ideal if you work and want to complete the sessions later in the evening. Some of the weeks will be optional face to face visits where we meet as a group on location, dates tbc.
