What is your favourite ground bird? Is it the naughty Brush Turkey, the Brown Quail or the Lyrebird? If you can’t decide you can choose from our studio collection! You will begin by drawing your bird, investigating its body shape, legs, head and tail feathers. You will then transfer your drawings to soft wire mesh which will be cut and connected to form the under frame for your sculpture. You will then colour your drawing using coloured pencils and collage before cutting this out and glueing it to your wire frame to make fabulous bird sculptures!

All art materials supplied.

Any child who is in the appropriate age range indicated for each workshop can attend, no prior experience is required to partake. EXCEPTIONS: If an older child wants to do a younger child’s workshop eg: 9 wanting to do a 5-8 year course that will be fine as long as the child knows they will be with younger children. We won’t be able to have a 7 year old do a 10-12 year course. Please also note all children must have started school, pre schoolers are not accepted for these workshops.
