Creative Christmas classes for all ages at Down Arts Centre

Down Arts Centre is delighted to offer young customers the opportunity to make their Christmas preparations even more special by creating their own festive items.

dac6Totally Creative Christmas is a series of six Saturday morning workshops for children aged 7-11, with tutor Diane Robinson, commencing on Saturday 7th November at 10am.

Christmas is coming, which means it’s time to make some fabulous festive items. Tutor Diane Robinson has a collection of fabric, paper and all the other craft materials that creative kids need at this time of year.

Over six weeks of Saturday morning classes, Diane will guide participants through some exciting new projects. Think Santa, think Rudolph, think baubles and bells. And think what fun you could have making something truly unique in the run up to Christmas. All materials are included; old clothes should be worn.

Down Arts Centre also offers grown-ups that want to get into the festive spirit an opportunity to get creative. Fabric Christmas Wreaths is a one-day workshop on Saturday 28th November (10am – 4pm) with tutor Naomi Whan. Participants will create a modern and funky Christmas wreath constructed from fabric, beads and wire.

The completed wreath will look fantastic on a door, inside wall, or displayed as a table centre piece, adding that little bit of extra Christmas sparkle to you home. Lunch and materials are included in the price.
