Bee on flower

It’s almost time for our first event!

Lead artist, Elizabeth has been getting a little down-time out in nature (see flower and bee photo) between the extremely busy days of preparing for our August workshops, which are now all fully booked up! Here are some photos of test and demo pieces her and Shama have been working on, screen printing and paper marbling. We can’t wait to get involved with all our participants creating beautiful monoprints of bees, screen-printing beetles and making models of ants! Not to mention all the other exciting workshops we have lined up for August. If you’re attending the model making workshop, you can help us build a GIANT ant sculpture for our exhibition in April 2023, as well as creating your own small ant models.

We are sorry for those that asked us to book onto a workshop but didn’t get a place. Unfortunately, we have limited staff, resources and space within our venues, so had to restrict our capacity somewhat. However, more workshops are on their way! We hope to be able to continue to offer art workshops across Leicester and Leicestershire in the coming months and years. We have a number already prepared and they are all FREE!

Here are the details we know about our coming workshops in September and October:

  • 10/09/22 – 10:30 – 12:30. Braunstone Park (outside) – Land and Trees workshop.
  • 24/09/22 – 10:30 – 12:30. Abbey Park (outside) – Land Art workshop.
