Welcome to Blackbird Arts - workshops coming up:

Why not have a look at the Archive to see what we do.


Wood Carving - 13/10/18 - Wilderness Wood

with Martin Brockman

Martin will show you how to handle basic wood carving chisels and assess working in three dimensions.  There will be a selection of locally sourced timber, e.g. planked lime for relief carving and oak, sycamore or birch logs - which can be your starting point to create a unique carving of a bird.

A lovely decoration from the woods!

Suitable for adults and competent teenagers.

Mosaic - 27/10/18 - Isfield Village Hall
with Hannah Griffiths
Local Mosaic Artist Hannah Griffiths will guide you through a small project suitable for a day long workshop, but also show you how to develop it further at home.
A range of materials will be provided, but students may wish to use their own collected tiles, broken crockery or treasured objects for particular personal projects.
Suitable for adults and competent teenagers
