The New Art Exchange is a lovely gallery which lies in Forest Fields, right near 'the Forest' tram stop. I volunteer there when I can at their workshops which are held most Saturdays, and are completely free of charge! They are family friendly but anyone is welcome to pop along. Last Saturday I helped out at a Modern Origami class, led by textiles artist Ruth Singer.
At first the end product seemed a bit complicated (one little boy exclaimed "That's impossible!") but it was actually quite simple and by the end of the class everyone had made an origami box using recycled paper.
The end product!
Upcoming workshops I'm looking forward to include:
Saturday 17th March, 2pm- 4pm: Photographic Mosaic
Saturday 31st March 2pm -4pm: Camera Obscura
If you live locally and would like to come along to a workshop or event, more info can be found here.
