Watercolour & calligraphy: Learn the classic techniques of watercolour and calligraphy and create a scene featuring pandas, goldfish and Chinese characters.
Mon 8 Jan 1.15pm | Wed 10 Jan 9.30am | Thu 11 Jan 1.15pm

Chinese paper lanterns: Explore a variety of materials and patterns to create an illuminated fish lantern ready to light the way for Chinese Lunar New Year.

Chinese dragon masks: Using cardboard sculpting and pattern-making techniques you’ll create a wearable dragon mask.
Tue 9 Jan 1.15pm | Wed 11 Jan 1.15pm | Fri 12 9.30am

Each workshop runs for 3 hours and the group size is limited to 16 participants so your young creative can enjoy one-one-one art tuition by our qualified artist teachers.

Book in for a morning or afternoon session or make a day of it with free lunchtime supervision if you book for both on the same day.
