Art in Action – 14-17 July 2016: Classes


Tickets now on sale for Practical Classes

The team are working on making this a very special celebration for our last year. I have some good news in that our tickets are now live for Practical Classes. With over 3,000 places and 40 crafts to choose from, the Practical Classes are your chance to have a go!

New this year we have a ’ZenDo’ area by the river where you can try Zen Brushwork as the art of ‘being awakened through writing’. You might want to try Contemporary Willow Basketry, Japanese Shibori Dyeing, Capturing the Moving Figure in watercolour or the ever popular pottery throwing.

The essence of Art in Action is to immerse yourself in the art and creativity and I think you will find a pallet of inspiring classes and teachers at this year’s festival.

Online bookings are now open on our website now - otherwise head to the Practical Class Ticket Tent when you arrive!
