Creative Arts Social Club

Led by Amanda Schenk.

A sociable group for people who want to make art, but just aren’t doing it right now!

Professional artist Amanda Schenk leads this creative community. Play with materials, go on art adventures and explore your arty side. You’ll grow in creative confidence, meet new people and have fun getting playful with a range of art techniques.

Wed 2 May – 23 May, 6 Jun – 27 Jun and 4 Jul – 18 Jul
10.30am - 12.30pm
£48 for 4 week course | £36 for 3 week course

The Maidenhead Beach

The ever popular Maidenhead Beach is back, all summer long – this year inspired by the laid back tropical paradise that is Goa.

The Beach has been designed and handmade by Norden Farm with the help of the community.

It’s free to play on every day with beachside tables available for snacks and lunch, including children’s picnic bags from the Café Bar.


Peel yourself off the beach and get creative with your little ones in our daily Beach Craft sessions:

Arts and Crafts (45 mins) | £5 per child Monday – Saturday 10.30am

Or sit back and relax with them in the story den for our Storytelling sessions:

Storytelling (20 mins) | £2 per person Monday – Saturday 1.30pm and 3.30pm


For maximum chill out, explore the indoor sensory space in our Gallery. It is designed for children with SEND and features work from local schools. Get involved with decorating the floor and making kites.


All of this and a full programme of family films and live events, the Goan Beach is the perfect place to pitch up this Summer.

Dean Piacentini – Places, Traces, Spaces

Dean fell under the spell of Abstract art as a bass playing art student in the late 1970s.

He tries to generate a series of visually interesting juxtapositions, which lead to a sense of wholeness and recognition as the piece finally slips into view.

Meet the Artist for his Private View on Friday 18th May between 6pm – 8pm.

Ed’s Industry – Ed Waller

Edward’s photos convey abstract impressions through the unusual angles on the places and objects that are around us. His early training as a graphic designer imbues his vision of the everyday as art.

Ed’s current style of painting is evocative and powerful. Accomplished mostly in black and white, his paintings are stark statements of fact.

It’s a Dog’s Life – Paula Zimmerman

Paula gained a degree in Art and Art History at Scarborough University in 1998 as a mature student.

Her career as an artist began as a ceramicist making quirky animals. She became interested in painting, initially as an abstract painter. Now she enjoys working with colour design and animals. She combines both in her animal portraits.
