Art & Craft Experiments


The main aim of this group is to encourage creativity in any medium you want, and not to be afraid of “giving it a go”. I like to pass on the knowledge I have learnt, and as I have almost everything, it is a safe place to try before you buy!

The next meeting is on Friday 24th November 10.30am and will be held at my place, Penrose Bed & Breakfast, off Scrations Lane, Lostwithiel. Not sure what we are doing, but it will be fun!

 A Xmas picnic was suggested so it will be on Friday 15th Dec - down by Lostwithiel Bridge if the weather is good - or at Penrose if not!

Whether you are an artist or a doodler; a knitter or embroiderer, we hope you will try mixing up styles and mediums with the help and encouragement from our group.

Assemblages and collages are two common examples of art using different media that will make use of different materials including paints, pens, cloth, paper, wood and found objects.

Our meetings will be held the last Friday of each month – 10.30am to 12pm. Looking forward to seeing what creations we can come up with. We will either be out and about or held at a local venue.

Please contact Heidi Swire via enquiries@penrosebb.co.uk or by telephone 0776 690 0179

Below is a sample of the group's creativity. Last month we went to Golant and only used watercolours, watercolour sticks and watercolour pencils.
