People are being asked to showcase their artistic skills at a workshop next week.

To coincide with its Walking the Tide exhibition from September 26 to October 31, the Florence Arts Centre, Egremont, has organised an art workshop.

Participants will be able to create a simple artist’s book, with workshop leader Rachel Metcalfe.

The workshop will be held on October 3, from 1pm to 3pm and will cost £15.

At the end of the course it will be possible to make a freestanding artist’s book.

Rachel will give a series of demonstrations and participants will be inspired to fill their pages with sketches, using paints created from pigments unique to the Florence Mine.

The session is suitable for all abilities aged 12 and over. All materials are provided by the centre and are included in the workshop.
