Kick Start with Christine Plummer 24th Nov 2018

Christine will run a one day workshop, 24th November linked to the Regional Kickstart project. 
Members would have to pay £35 to attend. With the topic Geology and Fossils Christine would help students to explore and develop techniques to achieve work of exhibition quality.  She will encourage students to experiment with different mediums and help students to develop their own techniques. We hope to have at least eight members involved in this project. Students would be encouraged to do their own individual projects – but after the one day workshop Christine would still offer advice and help to enable them to complete the project with the aim to put work into an exhibition.
