So far I've been 3 times and have *loved* every minute. There is an artist in residence who will help if you want / need it. At the moment its Paul who does incredible art work. If you want him to he will guide you through a project or you can just get stuck in and do your own thing, which is what I've been doing.
They have loads of stash there - canvasses of all sizes, paint (acrylic and watercolour), pastels, brushes, pencils, mod roc, corrugated card and if there is anything you particularly want they will try, within reason, to get it for you.
So far I have completed 2 pieces. The first is called 'Windows to the Soul'. I initially covered the canvas (15.5" x 11.5" shallow edge) with mod roc (the stuff plaster casts are made of) and attached the masks with that. I then took it home and me and the masks had a falling out and they came un-stuck. So I covered the whole thing with paper taken from an altered book I started at a workshop ages ago. I painted the background with a weak wash of black Ecoline Ink.
I think the picture is advertising a body wash or moisturiser that contains no chemicals but I just *love* the picture!
