Having trained as a Fine Artist at Wimbledon School of Art, Sara works in a range of media, including painting, sculpture and collage.  Her inspiration comes mainly from the sea, during walks to the beautiful beaches of Gower, where she makes sketches and collects driftwood or other found objects, to create collaged paintings and sculptures, as well as painting on canvas. Sara will be showing these contemporary paintings, featuring the sea, birds and flowers at Bali Hai, some of which will be available to purchase.  Refreshments available.


Sun 14 July | 11am - 3pm | £20 including all materials
Limited places so please book in advance.
Refreshments / light lunch provided.

You will learn the ancient arts of batik and indigo dyeing in this fun and inspiring workshop with Sara. Using nature as inspiration, designs will be drawn in wax onto fabric before dipping into an indigo dyeing bath.  The finished artwork can be framed, or used as a unique home textile such as a cushion cover, etc.
