Everyone thinks they know what they look like – selfies are everywhere – but take another look.

On this course you and your child (or grandchild, friend, godchild, niece, nephew etc etc) will play around with different ways of drawing yourselves, and each other. Through the day you will be drawing, using colour and modelling with clay (more than a chance you will get messy).

We will provide the materials needed for the day if you bring smallish mirrors for everyone doing the workshop. It will involve paint and clay so wear appropriate clothes. There must be at least one adult to every two children. It is appropriate for most age groups.

This is a fun exercise to enjoy in the beautiful setting of the yurt in a field by the river Test. There will be a picnic lunch provided using the same fine ingredients sourced for the café.
