Introduction by Gary:-

Have you always wanted to learn more about being creative? Have you wanted to explore design, but never had the opportunity? Well, I've created a series of specifically designed classes just for you! They can be accessed by everyone and at all levels and abilities. This is for all of you who would like to learn and have a go, and those who enjoy being creative but would like to become a little freer and more open to some new ideas.

If you love, colour, doodling and playing with scraps of paper, cloth, and ephemera then you are really going to enjoy your time on Gary’s 90-minute Art & Design classes. This 'ticket' is for the March class, Design Retro Patterns & Doodles, which takes place on Wednesday 08 March 2023.
