‘The Sock Lady’ will be offering three great activities:


Ages: children, teens, adults, family

“Explore the magical art of Japanese paper folding and make some fun, colourful 3-D paper creatures!”


Ages: children, teens, adults

“Make a silly sock creature from a single sock, inspired by the traditional sock monkey!  Good for beginners, this is an excellent introduction to sewing, and there might be some fun tips and tricks for an experienced sewer.  Make an adorable toy, to keep or give as a gift.”


Ages: children, teens, family

“Create a strange and colourful monster (* toy or puppet) from ultra-soft minky fabric. This sewing class is good for any skill level including beginners.”

You don’t have to be a professional artist if you’d like to try one of the workshops or life drawing sessions we have happening at the art centre during the show. Visit our Artists’ Workshops page to find out more!
