Join ArT for a workshop with a difference. This workshop lasts for just over an hour where participants hand carve into thermalite blocks to create a decorative garden planter from scratch. A therapeutic way to learn carving skills when using a readily available and easy to use modern material.
Art processes such as sculpture, ceramics and painting are proven to boost wellbeing. They are therapeutic and used as a way to relieve or reduce stress. The workshops I offer specifically focus on a range of hand building processes and techniques where traditional craft skills can be enjoyed and practiced. At the Festival of Thrift I support participants to learn basic carving techniques using hand tools on thermalite blocks, creating a decorative garden planter.
