With a mix of hand building, wheel throwing and turning, glazing and firing you can make a range of pieces you can be proud of.

It is a pleasure to welcome Helen Yu as our new Friday Art Group teacher. Helens favourite type of medium is pastels.

“There is no right or wrong way of making art work, rather it is to enjoy the process of exploring, experimenting the unique artistic expression of their own. There is an increasing amount of scientific evidence that proves art enhances brain function and has an impact on brain wave patterns, emotions and the nervous system and helps to stimulate the senses.

Art helps with hand, eye coordination, cognitive abilities, and concentration. Pastel is a very poetic and responsive medium to use. Not just as a sketching tool but for artistic expression. Pastels contain a higher concentration of pigment than other mediums so the colour is incredibly vibrant.”
