Service Description

Online Workshop: ----------------------- In this two session workshop, we will explore the intricate patterns created by William Morris, featuring swirling leaves, playful birds, rose-covered trellises, and branches of fruit trees. William Morris was a poet, artist, philosopher, typographer, and political theorist and the most celebrated designer of the Arts & Crafts movement. During the workshop, we will delve into Morris's history, drawing inspiration from his works to craft our own nature inspired artwork. We will examine his use of mark making techniques, observe his creative process from initial sketches to final designs, and learn about colour palettes and creating pattern based artwork. The workshops will include tutor led demonstrations, guiding us through a journey of exploration with opportunities for self guided exercises. Participants will complete the workshops with sketches and a final piece, with newfound knowledge and skills. WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR: We welcome all ages of children from 7 years. Although our suggested age range is up to 13 years, we welcome older children as well. We believe this age range offers the ideal opportunity for everyone to fully immerse themselves in the projects. HOW DOES IT WORK? -These classes are live and held on the platform zoom, you will need a laptop or tablet to access this. - Step by step guidance and demonstrations, seeing everything that is being created. We would love for everyone to have their camera and microphone on so we can all chat throughout. - Children are encouraged to get involved however they are welcome to chat through the chat box if they feel more comfortable. - Our online classes also offer a fantastic opportunity for children to connect with fellow young artists. Despite being in a virtual setting, they can form friendships, interact, and proudly share their incredible creations with one another.
