Fenland Community Arts

Creativity in Fenland!


Join us for a series of short creative courses (2-3 hours per week for 6 weeks) in a variety of art-forms in March and Wisbech.  These are on offer to people who live in March, Wisbech and the surrounding areas and will be free of charge to adults 19+ on means-tested benefits who have experience of mental ill-health or face other challenges.


Environmental Art

Take a step into the world of Environmental Art with Jane Thewlis and discover a world of unconventional art materials on your doorstep.  Discover the artistic properties of grasses, leaves and sticks and learn about different trees and their distinctive leaf shapes.  You’ll explore inventive techniques and enjoy experimental ways to stitch and join these natural materials together to create a collection of small scale sculptural pieces of Environmental Art.

 Wednesdays 1.30-4.30pm, 6 June – 11 July, The Oasis Community Centre, St Michael’s Ave, Wisbech PE13 3NR
