NEW ... Orkney Inspiration : an online exhibition of photographs by Orkney naturalist, Mary Harris
If you are here on holiday & staying at one of the hotels or holiday cottages on Hoy then we can fix up a fun session for your family of 4 to enjoy during your stay.
You'll need to let us know what dates you are here & we can schedule you in!
Cost is £20 per person (£80 for the group). You'll need to allow 3 hours.
Each session takes inspiration from ocean creatures under the sea right outside our window here in Orkney, and the classes are held in the Sun Room alongside the beach.
A choice of 3 activities are available for your family to enjoy - so you can all pick & choose.
1. Create your own starfish to take home with you, by modelling white air drying clay which you can then decorate using colourful waterbased paints.
2. Try your hand at mono printing to create a series of unique prints inspired by the ocean waves.
3. Indulge in a riot of colour using paint & colours taking inspiration from the gorgeous corals & anemones which lie under the sea here in Hoy.
Price per person includes professional art materials & tools that you’ll need in the 3hr session, instruction from a qualified Fine Artist, tea & coffee & perhaps some tasty flapjacks too!
There are lovely coastal walks right outside the door if you want to combine your activities to make a full day out.
