Summer Holiday Art Camp

July 29 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

This group is for young explorers and creatives (7-12 years old recommended) and will be based in the wonderful grounds of Aberglasney Gardens. We will meet each week at The Piggeries. Weather permitting we will be making art outdoors each session, and also in the potting shed at The Piggeries if necessary. 

The cost is £20.00 per session and there will be 5 session running through the Summer Holidays. All children will need to be accompanied by a parent or carer (who will get free entry).

Fun activities may include den building and decorating, leaf printing, mud sculpting, pattern making with plant materials – so wearing clothing you don’t mind getting messy/outdoor clothing and footwear are advisable. We will also learn a little about artists whose work is inspired by gardens and environmental artists who make art outdoors from found materials.

This course is being run by Sally Jane Webster of Wild Practice Arts, who is an artist, wild writer and creative facilitator with a passion for encouraging recovery and rejuvenation – both for nature and people. She lived in rural East Anglia as a child, loved art and recalls always having a deep feeling for the land, plants and creatures, as well as for fellow humans.

Sally is trained in Forest School Leadership and Wild Therapy. She has held roles in mental health services, teaching and facilitating community projects.

She developed her own creative interests via a degree in Fine Art, specialising in Social Sculpture. She uses diverse materials and methods employed with playful exploration – weaving, sewing, scratching, marking, painting, tearing, tying, and untangling – resulting in re-marking, re-making and re-solving.

Sally welcomes opportunities to collaborate creatively on environmental and nature-inspired themes, including community projects, private commissions, and the provision of workshops, teaching and individual mentoring.

If you would like to get in touch, please email her via sally@wildpracticearts.co.uk
