Spend the day in a unique learning environment making your own letters using colourful recycled drinks cans with practising artist Debbie Todd.
Reduce your carbon footprint by making unique and stunning decorative letters covered with colourful and interesting re-cycled metal drink cans. The letters you will make are ideal as interior decoration, or 10th Anniversary (Tin) gifts. The letters can be created with a hanging point for display on a wall, door or a shelf.
Beginners are very welcome and excellent tuition in an inspiring and immersive environment will provide a fun and productive experience.
Either a half or full day workshop can be booked and the price includes tuition, all materials, hot beverages and good cake!

Recycled drink can metal, leather and particleboard.
You will have a choice of dozens of coloured cans with a variety of sophisticated graphic imagery to work with and will learn how to embellish the metal using embossing, punching and sanding techniques. You will also complete each letter with a leather edge depending, and depending on time constraints a leather backing too.
Please note that during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 our workshop program has been severely curtailed due to both lockdown and social distancing measures. Therefore, given the ongoing nature of this health crisis, it is unlikely we will be able to host our full workshop program during the later half of 2020 and early 2021. We're monitoring the situation for the earliest likely date we are able to restart sessions properly and as such any workshop vouchers purchased during 2020, or with expiry dates during this pandemic, will be extended to help accommodate any missed or backdated sessions. Thank you for your understanding and patience at this time.
