Rugby Festival of Culture 2019: Folk Art Workshop with Beccy Roberts

  • Date: 6th July 2019
  • Location: Rugby Art Gallery and Museum, Little Elborow Street, Rugby, CV21 3BZ
  • Time: 10:30 - 15:30
  • Cost: £45 per ticket. All materials provided.

Folk Art is more popular than its ever been - heritage crafts are very much in vogue and heritage decoration is now very much sought after.


During this workshop you will be focusing on the art of the canals - namely Roses & Castles. Using the correct tools for the job - a mahl stick, special folk art paint brush and
enamel paints and following lots of slow demonstrations - you will learn the basic strokes you need to master simple flowers and leaves ... and there will be plenty of time to
practice and play - still the best way to learn. During the afternoon you will each decorate your own plate and mug to take home and show off to the family.
