About the Event
Thanks to funding from The National Lottery’s Reaching Communities fund, we are excited to share with you our creative programme of summer taster workshops, which will be running throughout August.
Immerse yourself in the wonderful world of arts and crafts by taking part in our creative and fun workshops. You will get hands on experience and support from our expert tutors who are on hand to provide you with all of the tools and knowledge you need to complete one of the taster workshops.
Here at MBC Arts Wellbeing, ceramics workshops are some of our most popular workshops to do. During the taster session you will learn all about the fantastic world of ceramics, including the best way to create your item using multiple techniques, the different methods to drying ceramics items and how to paint your ceramic creation.
