Design & Decorate a Mini Sleuth Bear

Design & Decorate a Mini Sleuth Bear

As part of The Big Sleuth Sculpture trail - special limited edition mini-bears

We are delighted to announce that artist Jenny Shufflebotham has agreed to lead this design workshop and brings her creative skill from working on the 'big bears' to Solihull for this unique course.

The Big Sleuth is a fantastic sculpture trail right across the West Midlands including 6 giant bears in across Solihull.  This is a one-off course for young people or adults to participate in The Big Sleuth by working with a professional artist to design and decorate their own limited edition mini-bears on this full day course from 10am - 4pm in The Studio at The Core.  (If you would like to decorate the bear at home, or cannot attend the course- please buy a ticket and request to take the bear away in advance).

Specifically aimed at young people aged 11+  to adult on Weds 9th August it might be good to take 10 minutes before arriving to walk around the Solihull bears, and the Schools bears in the Courtyard Gallery to take inspiration from others!  Working with artist Jenny, participants will conceive their own design in the morning, then work on their special mini-bear during the afternoon mostly using specialist colour pens and acrylic paints.  A chance to expand design skills using professional tuition and learn with a professional artist.  

The cost is £30 for the full day 10am-4pm to include the limited edition bear to take home.
