Peacock Visual Arts will be hosting family workshops during the Schools October break; Neil Kellas and Niamh Coutts will lead these workshops, creating an environment for freedom of expression, developing new skills but most of all having fun.
Create-A-Skate is a family workshop where you can customise your own up-cycled skateboard decks. These are second hand wooden decks that have been reshaped and sanded to a quality fit, for function or for decoration. This workshop aims to provide a safe space for participants of all ages to express their creativity whatever knowledge of art and skateboarding they have. This is a gently guided class with a relaxed structure, encouraging participants to make they own decisions and choices. Neil Kellas will be there to assist realising these ideas and will be on hand to if guidance is wanted or needed. A range of materials and processes will be provided such as; spray paint, acrylic paints, and printing materials. The outcome of this workshop is to allow people to create freely, at any skill level and to leave with an object that can be used in a healthy and active way.
