Hafren at Home
Workshops, Classes and Live Streaming
Hafren has had to reassess the Community Engagement Plans for 2020-21 in the current climate. Covid-19 has brought a new way of working for the arts industry and although we had initially delivered a couple of trial projects online, we have now developed working online extensively.

The art classes are very creative and so much fun,whilst at the same time educational and informative. Zoe's friendly, no-pressure approach encourages the student to explore ideas and techniques new and old, offering us potential art skills to encourage our confidence and explore different ways of drawing and painting. Zoe's obvious expert knowledge, skills and approachable tutoring skills make this class fun, time out from covid worries, exciting and educational. It's a feel good class for all age groups, accessible to all no matter how good your current art skills are. Zoe's encouragement and enthusiasm promotes the students self confidence and new found art skills.
I did try another class but it felt like painting with numbers, after that I decided not to bother, but then I was told about Zoe's class. Zoe is a mine of experience and information, finding something fresh to try and time to complete your work and she is so patient. I'm so glad I felt brave enough to join.
