This Christmas season, come down and have a go at making your own decorations and gifts using beautiful Sea Glass!

Join our workshop with Karen from Shore Things and she’ll show you how to create unique art from sea glass and sea pottery, with it’s softly rounded edges and pastel colours.  Everyone is an artist under Karen’s tutelage, even if you think you’re not creative!  Karen will lead you through the steps to create and frame a piece of art to be proud of.  And all from the the bits and bobs you can pick up from the shore line*…

All abilities and ages are welcome – just bring your imagination and see what you can create!

*Please note: Karen is very careful in what and how she collects things from the beach.  Under the Coastal Protection Act 1949, it is illegal to remove pebbles or sand from UK beaches, so Karen collects pieces of glass or pottery that have been washed ashore by the sea and is classed as rubbish so she is able to collect and recycle.
