During the weekly art classes the children are introduced to a variety of media and techniques, both 2D and 3D. By providing them with knowledge of materials and techniques, they are more able to make choices in ways to express their own creative ideas.
The language of art is also introduced to enable the children to convey their thoughts and feelings about their own work and the work of others.
Tuesdays: 4 – 5.30pm
Wednesdays: 4 – 5.30pm
Classes are limited to 10 students.
Cost: $180 / 10 week term. All materials are supplied.

The ancient craft of backstrap weaving is still practised by many indigenous weavers across the world today. The loom, which comprises nothing more than a set of simple sticks, allows a weaver to produce anything from narrow simple bands to wide pieces of cloth covered with complex pick-up patterns.
In this two-day workshop, students will start out on pre-warped looms to learn the basics of backstrap loom operation in which the weaver uses movements of his/her own body to adjust tension and open the sheds. The weaver is the loom! Other skills include making continuous string heddles, sword management and inserting the weft correctly to create even selvages.
We will weave plain-weave bands and then quickly progress to learning the principles of complementary-warp pick-up patterning using the patterns that are typically learned by young weavers of the Andes. These principles will then be applied to wider warps that the participants will themselves create, allowing them to advance to more complex patterns.
