Workshops Taking Place Over the 2018 Art Trail Weekend
Our workshops are drop ins so there's no need to book but please check timings listed below. Some are run on a first come, first served basis.
Olive Webb explains the attraction of working with different materials, allowing unexpected things to happen, serendipity - and finally, success: an original print is made.
Talk and demo, 3pm - 5pm, Saturday and Sunday.
Adventures in watercolour
Rosemary Simmons recalls moving from oil painting to watercolour, painting outdoors and gradually working experimentally towards abstract colour.
Talk and demo, 10am - 12pm, Saturday and Sunday.
Note: Space is limited to 15 people per session on a first come, first served basis. No booking required.
A group of sculptors from the Combe Down area will be showing their stone work outside (weather permitting) and demonstrating their carving techniques. Working primarily in soft Bath Stone (which is still quarried in Combe Down) the sculptors use hand tools to create interesting shapes, textures and patterns.
Demo, more information to follow
We're delighted to include the Rondo Theatre Company to this year's Trail! They'll be performing rehearsals for their winter show, the 1950s Ealing comedy "The Lady Killers". It's sure to be a lot of fun, suitable for all.
Rehearsal shows start at 2.30pm and run until 4.30pm, Saturday and Sunday. Drop in or stay for the whole thing.
