Nature printing with leaves, flowers and shells from the beach. A wonderful way to observe the stunning detail in our natural world and capture it on paper! 

Perfect for children with a fear of drawing or making mistakes. In this workshop we will be recording nature and designing. 1.5 hours. Materials provided but it's more lovely if you bring some of your own leaves in. £10. per child. Ages 7 to 14.




What is the Henry Hedgepodge Academy of Art?

Henry Hedgepodge Academy of ART is an expressive arts school and studio where the creative and therapeutic process of art making is employed to enhance the psychological and social well-being of individuals of all ages and health conditions. 

It is at its heart, an adult and children’s safe space for self-expression through the mediums of visual art, writing, play, and drama, for healing, transformation, rejuvenation, self-discovery, creative learning and exploration. The sessions are person-centered and led by creative and expressive arts practitioner Deborah Withey. As well, art + design lessons are offered for children and adults.

The studio is located on the first floor of The Green Shed, Merlins Bridge, Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire. Sessions and lessons are online due to COVID 19, however, limited face to face sessions in the studio will be available from July if mutually agreed safe to do so.
