Spring has finally crept into our beautiful workshop space at the Eco Centre and we are looking forward to sharing it with our community.
Thank you so much to all of our ‘Dip into Art’ participants who made the last ten weeks so creative, it was brilliant to see so many new skills and techniques being shared. This has been a great success and it was good to see lots of new faces and people returning to the space with an initiative that is inclusive and fun.
We have some exciting new workshops on offer. To keep in the Eco spirit and to celebrate the recent ‘World Book Day’ we are hosting a new workshop by mixed media artist Sharron Bates where you can combine creative skills to make something beautiful to take home. Bookbinding will be held on 28th March and will include the chance to create your own artwork on a cover, to personalise for yourself or for a gift.
Our Cree men have excelled themselves, once again, by creating a full species of bird boxes, creating homes for the spring for our wildlife. The men are busy learning new skills that benefit the community and improve their own wellbeing and have been supportive of a range of projects to help others. To find out more, just contact us or visit our website, the sessions are held on Mondays 10:30 – 12:00.
Our brilliant Creative Explorers are busy being ‘green’ and making use of recycled materials to create and learn new skills. Led by artist Dawn Belshaw, the groups have been making lovely items from plastic, eco printing and making insect hotels. Our next sessions will be held in the Easter holidays, with a new weekly course starting in April, to find out more just visit our website to reserve your space. The holiday activities will be held in Shildon and Aycliffe and are very popular and free! Come along and join us on Thursday 11th April, 10:00 to 11:30 at the Shildon Civic Centre in Shildon and 13:30 – 15:00 at Green Arts, Eco Centre, Newton Aycliffe, DL5 5AG.
