Learn New Skills At Milton Art Gallery’s Latest Workshops

Milton Art Gallery at Milton of Crathes

A Deeside gallery has launched a series of workshops giving people the chance to take up a new hobby or learn a new creative skill.

The Milton Art Gallery will be hosting a number of workshops in December, January and February in conjunction with local company Teasel & Tweed.

The workshops include a Christmas candle making workshop on 14th December at 11am and 2.30pm where people can also enjoy festive bakes and mulled wine while learning the art of creating your very own festive candle.

Three further workshops will be held at the beginning of the year.

If you missed the chance to attend the Christmas candle making workshop in December, you can join the Teasel & Tweed team on 18th January to make your own natural Ecosoy wax and scents.

A bottle lamp and shade workshop will be held on 25th January, where people will learn how to make their own designer Harris Tweed lampshade with bottle base.

Participants can learn about Annie Sloan Chalk Paint on 9th February where those attending will learn some essential techniques including colour distressing, creating a wash effect and experimenting with mixing colour.

All workshops include tea, coffee and cake and cost from £55 to £70.
