All About Us Festival | Circles of Colour and Paper-making

All About Us Festival | Circles of Colour and Paper-making

Come and have a taste of something different this August!

24 August, 11 am- 1 pm, at Trestle Arts Base, Russet Drive, St Albans AL4 0JQ
Cost: FREE but must be booked in advance
Limited to 24 participants (plus Support workers)

There will be more than one art activity at this session and you are encouraged to try both out!
We’ll be experimenting with colours, using long brushes to paint on giant circles of paper. Come and help create beautiful mixed up colours and patterns. All participants will contribute to a shared artwork that will be displayed in a museum as well as make their own smaller circle picture to take away. This art activity is suitable for everybody.

Run by Jane Glynn, an artist and educator. Her own artwork includes picture books, paintings and animations and she also works with museums, schools and art galleries, helping people to discover their own creativity.

We will also be making paper from scratch, using the paper pulp and deckles to create pieces of handmade paper, which you can then decorate. It's a soggy, pulpy process, very tactile and lot's of fun! Be prepared to get a little bit wet! All ages are welcome, although tiny ones may need to be supervised. You can then dry your sheets at home, add more decoration and send a message to a loved one.

Run by Chris Blanch, an Arts Development Officer with St Albans Arts Team for 14 years. She has run numerous art activities and projects with disability groups, minority communities, schools and residents. Her ethos is to make art fun and accessible for all.
