Creative Learning Experiences
Get creative on a learning experience! These days out for all ages aim to show you something different, teach you a new skill, get you making things and generally learning about stuff you never thought you'd master. Aimed at those who've always wanted to have a go, but never quite had the chance, Into the Blue helps by creating those chances, be it letting you try and new sport, firing your passion for dancing, or getting your creative juice flowing as you work with stained glass.
What we like most about these creative experiences is that more often than not, you've got something to show at the end of it, be it a beautifully arranged bouquet of flowers, or a personalised willow cricket bat. So not only do you get to enjoy your actual day of teaching and learning, you also get to appreciate the fruits of labour for years to come! Read more...
When we were young and at school teachers were always telling us the importance of learning. Experience tells us we don't always listen to that good advice and often when we grow up and we get a little wiser, we wish we'd 'had a go' at loads of things. Now here's your chance to grab that chance with this fascinating range of creative days and experiences from Intotheblue.
Some of the sessions are pretty off the wall, after all, who'd have thought that spending a day creating fancy sculptures out of ice could be such fun? Then there's graffiti painting. Once condemned as pure vandalism and now considered at art form in certain circumstances, this is your chance to spray paint your inner cool dude tendencies on a street art workshop.
As well as all that modern trendy stuff, we step right back in time with a Blacksmith course, where you'll be taught how to heat and work metal, just like smithy's have done for thousands of years. Now that's a pretty neat party trick to boast about, when you present your self-made iron candlestick as your table centre piece.
If you're very imaginative, chances are you'll love a day at jewellery school making lots of shiny, pretty sparkly things, or perhaps becoming proficient in making candles would be the one to light up your day?
And before you tell us you've got too left feet or not a creative bone in your body, that doesn't wash with us - and what's more the tutors and teachers on these workshops and courses are all very patient and skilled at getting the most out of their students. You might actually surprise yourself with what you are capable of!
Whichever learning experience you pick, you're sure to have your eyes well and trying opened to a new skill or sport that might just grab your attention so much that it becomes a new hobby. Even if it doesn't, there's nothing like saying you've learned something new and opened up your creative mind at the same time. Are you ready to get learning?
