Workshops

Each fair has a workshop corner offering a fun environment to get messy and a great opportunity in people’s busy lives
to have a really creative time.

Arty Party for Children

Art and Creativity Workshops

The Art Workshops at the Fairs are a great environment for children to get messy and have a totally creative time.

Children are inspired when they work with professional artists at our Creativity Workshops.

The artists teach the children foundation artistic skills such as handling a paintbrush and recreating an image.

The workshops are suitable for children and the young at heart.

From their first colourful daubs to intricate pencil drawings, it’s wonderful to see your children’s artistic talents grow. As a parent, your careful guidance can help develop their creativity, whether or not your child is ‘a natural’ in the art room.

Are we born creative?  What is creativity?

Read our free guide to find out the answers to these questions and how to encourage creativity in your child and how to nurture their creativity and develop it as they get older.

CHILDREN’S ART QUEST

Young visitors to the fair can show us just how much they know about art (probably more than mum and dad) by filling out a questionnaire about art techniques and artists exhibiting at the fair. A fun way for budding art enthusiasts to engage in the world of contemporary art.

Of course there will be prizes – Loxley Colour mini canvas and easel for every participant.

Sacred Spaces – Making a Sketchbook

The sketchbook holds a library of possibilities. A space dedicated to careless abandon, a place where the pencil commits to paper in its rawest state. Handwritten notes, intimate thoughts, a place to dwell, make mistakes and find answers. Our sketchbooks become sacred artefacts sometimes more so than the finished piece.

We invite you to join Jelly in creating and making your own sketchbook and taking inspiration from The Sketchbooks created by our exhibiting artists: Kevin Allum, Simon MacKoon, Emily Gillmor, Richard Conway Jones, Lisa-Marie Gibbs and Mary Riley.

The workshops are  suitable for adults and children and are free. Drop in sessions will be running over the whole weekend.

Live Art Theatre

A programme of demonstrations, talks and activities by artists running over the weekend, watch an artist take you through the process of creating a work of art, take part in a printing workshop or listen to a talk.
