Glenaeon Rudolf Steiner School

Glenaeon Studios

As part of the Glenaeon learning community Glenaeon Studios seeks to provide opportunities for you to explore and develop your skills in a variety of artistic and practical, hands on workshops. These may include ceramics, eco printing, indigo dyeing, basket making, painting, collage, felting, knitting and crochet. Participant numbers are kept to a minimum to engender a more meaningful experience for everyone.

The workshops may be one evening, day-long or over two days, and are generally held in the beautiful grounds of Glenaeon School’s Middle Cove campus. Depending on the type of course and school timetable, the textile rooms or other school facilities may be used, as well as other venues outside the school grounds. The workshops are generally for adults, parents, teachers and friends of the Glenaeon community. All are welcome. In the future some workshops may be tailored to suit children.
