Clay Paper Scissors offer art, craft and design classes for children. Each class is full of opportunities for learning a wide range of creative skills. Co-founded in January 2020, by two experienced primary art specialists, both passionate about children being able to express themselves through visual art, by developing knowledge and skills and following their own creative instincts as they do so.
A range of classes take place for children aged from 4 to 14 years old. Classes take place on Saturdays, in the school holidays and during the week for the home educating community. The children are most fortunate to be able to use the resources at both the Number 6 Studio Gallery in Pateley Bridge and at Fishpond Wood in Bewerley. Many of the children that attend classes live within Nidderdale, with an increasing number now travelling from as far afield as Harrogate, Knaresborough, Ripon and York.
Clay Paper Scissors also offer private classes, ‘Bags of Creativity’ for children to use at home and are available to curate and deliver exciting creative experiences for schools.
Clay Paper Scissors encourage children to look to the natural world as inspiration for their creative work. The use of natural and responsibly sourced materials, such as recycled or scrap items are provided for the children to experiment with in their activities, often with incredible results.
Children are encouraged to explore a wide range of media and to follow their own ideas. Each class provides several activities to choose from, always including a clay focus, a paper-based activity and scissors! In the past year, children have been able to learn a wide variety of art, craft and design skills including printing, textiles, drawing, painting, sculpting, modelling, paper making and more.
