Description

Come and have a go at creating beautiful and expressive collages using torn paper. We’ll explore how to use our hands to create shapes, layers and images full of colour and life. Torn paper collage is a fun and easy way to be creative and is a great activity for promoting mindfulness. This is also a great opportunity to meet other people and enjoy being creative together.

As part of our Wellness Through Creativity programme, after the workshop refreshments will be served and you are welcome to stay on in the house to carry on your artwork, read, walk the grounds or just relax until 1pm.

No previous experience is necessary.
