DANCING INTO ELEMENTAL ART WEEKEND WORKSHOPS near Bridport MARCH 28th and 29th 2020 10 am - 5 pm on Saturday 9.30 am - 4.30 pm on Sunday During these weekends we walk in the beautiful west Dorset landscape sometimes on the coast, sometimes on the high cliffs, on top of a local hill fort or deep in ancient woodland. This is the starting point for the weekend. We savour the sights, sounds and sensations of the outdoors to inspire movement and dance which will then lead on to various art activities such as stitching, drawing, painting or writing. The weekend culminates in a group response to the initial walk. There is no need for experience in either dance or art but just a desire to be creative and have a re-creative weekend. Contact me by email if you are interested. The weekends are non-residential but there are many B and B's and camp sites close by.

Using Laban's approach to dance no experience is necessary just a desire to dance, be creative, discover the dance in you and have fun. Here are some quotes from participants. "Thank you for such a rich time, I loved it all." "You drew out the very best of all of us." Thank you for so much creativity and fun, and I feel terrific after it, too." We meet in the village hall at Salway Ash near Bridport west Dorset. There is a good tea break in the middle of the session for chatting and making friends.
MAKERS WEEKEND at the Dorset Centre for the Creative Arts DCCA NOVEMBER 16th and 17th 2019 10am - 4.30pm This weekend there will be a profusion of art and craft work from a variety of artists and craftspeople. I shall be there with an exhibition of some of the work that previous students have created on the machine embroidery course, and I shall be demonstrating some machine embroidery techniques. It would be great to see you particularly if you are thinking of joining the beginners course in January 2020
BEGINNER'S MACHINE EMBROIDERY CLASSES at the Dorset Centre for the Creative Arts, Poundbury, Dorchester January 14th, 21st, 28th, February 4th and 11th. 10am - 4.30pm Each workshop is stand alone. However if you really want to get to grips with your machine and use it in a creative way come to several or all the sessions. The first one is obligatory to get to know your machine and what it, and you can do. If you book all five there is a discount. For the first session you will need to bring a machine that has the facility to drop the feed dogs (the teeth that push the fabric along), an embroidery frame, some calico and some machine threads. Phone the DCCA to book or go on the Weymouth College website. If you book please let me know so I can send more details to you.
