Abstract Hanging Sculptures with Sarah Anne Smith
Saturday 6 April 1-3pm, £6pp
It’s a welcome return to Sarah Anne Smith for this popular Artivities Extra family friendly workshop. Sarah will help you explore the creative possibilities of sculpture making and recycled materials by making your own unique small hanging sculpture from a variety of ready to use recycled materials prepped to different shapes, sizes and colours.
Note for parents/carers: This is a family workshop and we positively encourage parents/carers to participate. However, if you want to make your own piece alongside your child you will need to book the appropriate number of places, as this ensures that the artist brings appropriate supplies with them.
As our family workshops are very popular and places are limited, you will need to book on in advance. To book on please visit our Eventbrite listing or ask in person at reception.
