Get creative at the Eco Centre

Get Creative

Unleash your artistic abilities and gain confidence using recycled and natural materials. We offer tasters, one day and weekly courses. There are programmes for beginners and for those who want to take their learning further.


Our current brochure is packed full of this season's courses. These can be booked through our course search (opens in a new window). From the course search you can find information about the course, fees and how to book.

Arts with paper

Use pens, paper, paints and printers to be creative in words and images. Look closely, form your ideas and explore materials that help you share them on paper. For course dates and details see the arts with paper leaflet in the related documents section.

Mixed crafts

Create beautiful items using natural, recycled and found materials in three dimensions. You'll discover stunning combinations and glorious results. For course dates and details see the mixed crafts leaflet in the related documents section.

Textiles

Have a go at traditional skills using local products for contemporary crafts, getting creative with wool. Go further or combine them to make fabulous effects and useful, saleable items. You can save on buying new and use scraps and leftovers to make beautiful and popular handicrafts. For course dates and details see the fabric crafts leaflet in the related documents section.

Ceramics

Create your own unique designs in clay, glass or tile, inspired by the world around you. Using colourful glass off cuts and broken crockery you can form striking pieces to decorate your home, give as gifts, or supplement your income. In clay, use slab building, coiling, throwing on a wheel, slip decoration techniques and glazing. Courses include tasters and sessions suitable for older learners.
