Tate St Ives Workshop

The littlest one (aged 6) and I booked onto a Tate St Ives explorer workshop in late August. After a briefing from Tim our workshop leader we walked through the gallery to look at the paintings and drawings by Bryan Wynter (landscape painter 1915-1975, lived Zennor near St Ives).

Tim engaged the children with questions to get them thinking about the paintings and Wynter’s style (abstract).

Littlest particularly liked drawing with a glue stick and adding sand to her drawing.
The parents were encouraged to do everything too and the final drawings were used to inspire and make an acetate windsock.

Well done to Tim @ Tate St Ives for running a fun and educational Workshop, we’d definitely recommend it!
