People are being encouraged to embrace their creative side and join in a summer series of arts workshops.
Teddington’s Landmark Arts Centre has released its program of arts and crafts, literature and children’s courses for the summer season, which starts next month.
Participants can try their hand at something new with individual modules or join a six-week course to hone their skills under the watchful eye of the tutors, who are all practising artists.
Students also get the chance to submit their work for the end of year art course show, an annual exhibition scheduled for July.
Keen textile workers can enjoy a creative embroidery workshop or felt-making classes that will teach how to experiment with colour, surface techniques, patterns and stitches.
Fans of literature can learn how to weave their own stories in creative writing sessions, which will cover how to find inspiration and how to develop writing and bookworms can join in a new lunchtime book club.
Children aged seven to 12 can create their own comic strips and books in an afterschool workshop, including all materials.
Photographers can learn how to make the most of their camera, be it digital or film, and painters and drawing enthusiasts have a whole host of courses to choose from.
These include botanical art, pastel painting, life drawing, painting with acrylics, printmaking and more.
Summer courses at the Landmark Arts Centre, Ferry Road, Teddington. Starting Monday, April 15. Various times, dates and prices.
