Food and drinks can be purchased from our Café Bar. If you are providing your own lunch we ask that you eat this in the workshop space. Only Norden Farm’s catering can be consumed in the main foyer.

Norden Farm is a charity that operates on extremely tight margins and every penny really counts. Income from the Café Bar is essential to support our running costs. If you are able to support the charity, by buying food and drink from our Café Bar when you are here, it really helps.

Twilight Zen Drawing (online)

Led by Amanda Schenk

Amanda Schenk is the visual artist behind Norden Farm's much-loved (and Instagrammed) glass corridor artwork in the school holidays. Join Amanda for this new drawing course, aimed at helping to create a sense of calm and relaxation through drawing patterns.

Suitable for all abilities, the workshops will focus on building confidence in your drawing abilities - concentrating on the soothing journey of the drawing experience, rather than the finished drawing.

In each session you'll explore how to produce different types of patterns in abstract drawings - looking at different designs each week.

You will need: paper (plain, no smaller than A5), lead pencil, eraser, sharpener, black fine liner or a pen. Optional is a black marker.
