As the season turns and nights draw in, we mark the change by getting together to spark our creative imaginations. We shall carve and hollow pumpkins and fill them with light; decorate small lanterns to shine brightly and drive away the darkness; make marzipan skeletons; experiment and play with drawing, painting, and print to produce mixed media artworks; and light fires and make fire sculptures to remind us of the sun.

A weekend for all ages to get together and be imaginative, and have fun, in autumn! This weekend begins on Friday evening and finishes after lunch on the Sunday.
