Try It! - Fun with Folk Art is a 10-week course. We recommend that you attend all 10 sessions. However, if you have to miss one, that’s okay - you don’t need to book for all sessions in advance.

No prior experience is required to join the course. We welcome you and your friends to have some fun and Try It! this autumn.

Guideline Age Range: 10+

WITH VENESSA COOPER

Do you want to learn a new art or creative skill? Come and learn new, transferrable creative skills while making new friends.

Over the ten workshops, we’ll guide you step-by-step as you learn brushstrokes to create traditional Folk and Canal art works. We’ll cover the basic brush strokes and include different types of surfaces, creating texture, backgrounds and brush care. There will also be an opportunity to learn decoupage as well as how to use stencils and stamps in your work.

This club is suitable for men, women and children from the age of 10+ with no upper age limit.

We encourage those who suffer from anxiety, stress and lack of confidence, plus those who may have learning or other disabilities that excludes them elsewhere, to take part.

  • WEEKLY MEET UP: TUESDAY
  • START DATE: 5 OCTOBER 2021
  • TIME: 10am – 11.30am
  • VENUE: The SYDNI Centre, Leamington Spa (CV31 1PT)
  • Please note the second session will take place on Thu 14 Oct, not Tue 12 Oct.

Tickets cost £2 per person or £3 for two people (bring a buddy!)

WHAT IS TRY IT?

Try It! is a programme encouraging Coventry residents to have a go at a range of new, and often quirky, health-giving creative activities during our year as UK City of Culture.

We believe in social prescribing – the idea that, by taking part in community activities, we can all improve our health and wellbeing. 

This project aims to enhance the lives of community members and leave a lasting legacy of creative activities in Coventry.

For each workshop, you can book tickets online or pay at the door.
