On Saturday I joined Access Art at Burwash Manor in Cambridge to run a paper engineering course. During the course participants learnt how to make a sliding mechanism, a pop up picture, a vintage flower pop out and a bursting star collage. I was really impressed with the range of ideas and fantastic creations that were made on the day. It always amazes me that even though all participants were given the same materials to work with, their finished products were completely different - bringing their own personal style, preferences, ideas and talent.
As you can see from the pictures below we all had a great workshop and were very productive. Participants were all provided with packs that included instructions on the activities which will soon be available to download on the Access Art Website http://www.accessart.org.uk/
On a final note if you are even in the neighbourhood and get the chance you must visit Burwash Manor. The Manor consists of 15 independent stores ranging from designer clothing, organic produce, wine, gifts, toys, children's wear, decorating shops and garden ideas. Plus a tea room, day spa and some farm animals. A fantastic day out for the family. For more information check out their website http://www.burwashmanor.com/
Also keep an eye out on the Access Art Website for the fun filled Festival of Making being held at Burwash in July.
