Mayfair Centre is seeking an experienced relief carer, committed to promoting independence, for our day care centre for adults. Please click on the 'Volunteer and Job Opportunities' header for further information.

The Art Club, with Katy Alston, starts on Tuesday September 22nd 

Whether joining to improve artwork, make friends or just for the fun of it, come along to a friendly, contemporary, lively art course and see what you can achieve! Each week we will start with a short icebreaker activity, nothing too cheesy but just to feel a bit more at home, such as talk of hobbies, interests, or quick drawing exercise. Most sessions involve looking at an artist at some point and exploring what they did or do. It means effortless art history learning and it’s a great way to get motivated so for example we might look at Kate Slater (contemporary) and do a cut out (scissors only) collage picture using her work as inspiration. We might however look at her work at the end after we've battled to make out own pictures. Its a more creative way to go about it, you get more out of the children than if you present examples first.

Styro-foam printmaking is a fun thing to do (no press needed) to create original prints using styrofoam and printing ink. We will do a life drawing class using each other for quick poses (dressed!),we could include a look at Quentin Blake's drawings to inspire us, how he uses line to immediately create a lively atmosphere. Looking at Julie Arkell and wall mounted stuffed animals or animal-heads we will use papier-maché to make our own small versions.

We will look at Book Art and artists such as Su Blackwell, and make a Shepherd's hut model. As it won't be long till Christmas...what about learning how to make unique illustrated Christmas crackers as presents? Snaps and bangs included. This is a 6 x week course, and costs just £30. for the whole series of dates (£5 per session). The club is open to children aged 10-15 and runs from 5-6.30pm. 10 children maximum.

Session price includes all equipment.
