The Conservatoire Adult Open Day July 30th – come along and try our courses for free! Places are free of charge but must be booked in advance.  Art Carousel We will have four stations set up in our beautiful Victorian art studio for you to try your hand at different courses – Sculpture, Interior Design, Bookbinding and Life Painting.  Sculpture Offering a wonderful opportunity to explore your own ideas and passions, this hands-on class offers individual guidance through the whole process of sculpture. Open to all adult students regardless of experience or ability, you will be guided through using different materials, tools and techniques involved in sculpture. All tools and materials provided. Interior Design Have you ever dreamed of owning a home that would sit comfortably on the pages of a glossy magazine? Newcomers and experienced students are invited to come join us and learn the tricks of the trade to make your interior design scheme crackle and pop. We will consider user requirements, strategic design and different ways to communicate your ideas. We will also explore how a fresh look at space planning, ergonomics, colour, light, construction and soft furnishings can revitalise your home. Bookbinding Learn how to make your own beautiful books! In this class we will make a case binding with a hard cover, a Japanese binding and a book in Coptic stitch. You can make blank books to use as sketchbooks or notebooks, or you could bring in artwork you have prepared at home that you want to turn into a book (this could include drawings, collage, writing). The case binding and the book in Coptic stitch are made by folding paper into signatures and sewing them together. The Japanese binding is a method of attaching single sheets together. Life Painting Develop confidence and skills in painting directly from the model and explore a range of techniques including colour mixing to capture the effects of light and shadow, spatial qualities and the exquisite forms of the body.
