IN-HOUSE WORKSHOPS & SOCIAL GROUPS 

IN-HOUSE WORKSHOPS & SOCIAL GROUPS

In the relaxing studio based at Maker Heights, we have a very popular Sketchbook Social on the first Thursday of every month. This is an informal, evening gathering, bringing together artists of all ages and abilities. The sessions give participants an opportunity to try out new materials and speak to others about how to develop your work further – or you can just come, relax and have a go.

Also, each month we have needle felting, sewing groups, jewellery workshops and more. The sessions are for groups of people around the area that have decided to get in touch with fellow artists and crafters, learn and make together and have somewhere to go and enjoy each other’s company and shared interests.

We also run a weekly preschool playgroup on Wednesday mornings. Children can let their imaginations run wild with stories, sensory play and creative exploration.

Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to learn more about what groups are available or click here to find out what’s coming up.

HOME EDUCATORS’ FACILITY & ART STUDY SPACE

HOME EDUCATORS’ FACILITY & ART STUDY SPACE

The studio is set up with enough tables and chairs of all sizes to accommodate up to 20 participants in art and craft activities. We run regular sessions with local home-educated children and their carers who come up with ideas and tell us what they would like to learn which we provide for them. Working with groups of home-educators keeps material and resources cost-affordable for everyone to be able to join in as often as they would like.

The space is ideal for older students or teenagers studying GCSE or A-Level Art. Students can hire the studio in small groups with the parents’/carers’ permission, knowing that they have a safe and quiet place to study where they can paint, create and make a mess without it being on your kitchen table! Additionally, one of our team is an experienced student support worker who can guide students with their portfolio or presentation of their work if need be.

Please get in touch to find out more about making use of this wonderful facility, specifically created for arts and crafts. It’s a perfect place for learning together.

PRIVATE HIRE & ARTY PARTIES

PRIVATE HIRE & ARTY PARTIES

Our studio, in its relaxing setting of natural beauty surrounded by seascapes and coastal views, is a wonderful place to hire as a retreat. If you’re an artist or a small group of people that would like to participate in an art project together, you can use the studio as your base with all appropriate materials and equipment on hand. We have kitchen and bathroom facilities at the studio for your added convenience.

Arty parties can be provided for all ages, with a tutor to guide you through your creative projects. Hire prices are tailored for each project depending on your needs.

Please enquire with your ideas and book yourself a relaxing art and craft occasion to celebrate. We can do anything from Christmas decorations, printing, decoupage and rug making, to eco-friendly natural children’s parties and everything in between.

AWENEK IN SCHOOLS

AWENEK IN SCHOOLS

The Awenek Studio team can facilitate a wide range of art activities and workshops within schools.

We can provide extra-curricular art groups for both children and their carers or in-lesson painting and drawing classes.

We can attend school family fun days and help with interactive arts and crafts activities to bring the community together with your school.

We can also help with the revamping of display boards and signs around your school and even help with backdrops for school plays.

Get in touch to speak to us about any ideas you may have for linking your school with your local community and arts in your area.
