Be Creative Weekend at Almondbury Methodist Church
'Be Creative' - Arts workshops for the community

On Saturday 26th September 2009, 10.00am to 3.00pm, Almondury Methodist Church and The Wesley Centre were host to the 'Be Creative' weekend. The 'Be Creative' workshops were part of our Harvest Celebration weekend. Many people came along from the local community and enjoyed the day. Each person had booked to attend either an art class, photography class, or pottery class. Each class was run by experts who were on hand to show how its done and give top tips.

Art Class with local Artist Betty Thornton

Set in the beautiful and well lit surroundings of the Church, the class created paintings from a range of still life subjects or using a photograph of their own special scene. Betty has years of experience in working with all age groups and all abilities.

Photography Class with Jonathan Turner

The class learnt about lighting, composition and the different settings to create different effects, using their own cameras. The weather was good and our photographers ventured outdoors to take some special shots. It was a must for anyone looking to improve their photographic skills.

Pottery Class with David Helm of Thorpe End Pottery

Working with clay, the class produced their own personal piece of pottery, which will be fired and glazed. Some of the items were available for exhibiting at our Harvest Weeekend on the 3rd and 4th October.
