Take a stroll along almost any of the beautiful beaches which surround Northern Ireland and pause for a moment and look down and discover a wonderful array of coloured pebbles, pieces of broken ceramics and frosted glass and a selection of decorative shells and driftwood.
These bits and pieces that can be found along the seashore or on beaches, are easily collected and will form the basis of your Sea Craft Art.
With a little imagination your collection can be transformed into beautiful and interesting pictures and mosaics.
This workshop will show you the basics of Sea craft, will explain how to use adhesives and will offer advice on where to find the best artefacts for the craft.
No experience is necessary; all you need to bring with you is your imagination.
