Embossed recycled tin plaques
Who is this course for?
The craft skills are aimed at complete beginners through to those with some experience. All welcome.
The course will look at how you can use everyday items, that you may ordinarily put into the re-cycling bin, as materials to create unique plaques, tiles or decorative adornments for other art and craft activities. The only skill level required is an imagination! It is intended that the course will provide you with the opportunity to interact with other learners in a relax and enjoyable session.
Support and feedback
Your tutor will support you throughout the course through online face to face and written feedback on your progress and suggestions on how to progress. You will work with your tutor on your personal goals within the structure of the course.
