Exeter Community Gets Creative

By March 28, 2017 News No Comments
Felt Art workshops have started at Exeter Community Centre as part of our community creativity project Exe-Arts. It’s a fascinating technique and a very simple way to make striking works of art. Using soap, water and, of course, wool, and with a little bit of magic it all comes together to turn into felt!
This week we made beautiful, colourful flat pieces and next week our tutor, Holly Jarrett (Holly Made This), will be helping us to create 3D pockets, purses and make-up cases. There’s still space to sign up for the second session on 30th March so come along and give it a go! Felt sessions are also beginning at St. Sidwell’s Community Centre from 28th March if you feel inspired to get involved.

Our St. Sidwell’s Painting Experience sessions have produced fine work! Some really exciting, creative and diverse pieces came out of these two sessions. We now have a very impressive line up of artworks to display at our final exhibition, to be held on 13th May at Exeter Community Centre. Come along to have a look and help us celebrate everything that’s been achieved!

Animation madness! Saturday was our Animation workshop which was fun for all the family. It’s easy to be quite mad with this type of animation, making plasticine figures and moving them around to do absolutely anything you can imagine. Characters were in space, in a jungle, sad under the sea, with sharks and spacemen. If animation and computers are your thing please come along to our Digital Art workshop on 20th April. You can work on any sort of device you bring along including laptops, phones and tablets.

Our Raku Pottery class (taking place as part of Hey Clay! and the BBC Get Creative weekend) has been phenomenally successful and is now completely booked up but you can still drop in to watch the firing anytime between 12 & 3pm on 8th April. We also have an exciting Willow Art course coming up in April at St. Sidwell’s. Book on to all courses at superact.org.uk/events or email Patsy: patsy@superact.org.uk.
