‘Upcycled Sketchbooks and a spot of Plein Air Sketching’  

10am – 12pm


 A fun workshop for all of the family; making rustic and quirky sketch  books made out of paper and materials such as brown envelopes and cardboard boxes. Then, using these sketchbooks, there will be an introduction to Plein Air sketching; in the serene and beautiful countryside that surrounds the Water Tower. All materials will be provided. But you are more than welcome to bring some of your own recycled materials to use.


‘Collage, the Great Outdoors and Muddy Paint’

2pm – 4pm


Create your own drawing paper! Collage together traditional drawing papers combined with scraps rescued from your recycling bin. Then, inspired by the surroundings of the water tower, paint and draw landscapes onto your surface by using nature’s materials such as mud and nettle paint!

All materials will be provided, but feel free to bring your own papers e.g. news and packing paper.


For each workshop it will be £15 for first child, £12.50 for siblings, and £3.00 for adults. (All children must be accompanied by an adult).
