Children under 5 and carers for disabled are free.
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 the website now – otherwise head to the Practical Class Ticket Tent when you arrive!
The Practical Classes Teachers are all artists or art teachers. They also have a joint display in the Teachers Exhibition Tent and most of the works are for sale. It’s a wonderful opportunity to see a wide variety of art created to a very high standard.
Half of the places for each class are now available for pre-booking on the website here.
Each day of the Festival, the other half of places for each class will be sold from 9.30 am onwards at the Practical Classes Ticket Tent (you can only purchase tickets for your class on that day).
