Events and activities at Banstead Library

Special events

Young arts mosaic workshop

  • Saturday 27 April.

We will be hosting two free mosaic workshops at Banstead Library, sponsored by The Arts Society Chipstead, with artist Abel Kesteven.

There will be two sessions:

  • 10.30am–12 noon for 6–9 year olds,
  • 2pm–3.30pm for 10–13 year olds.

Responsible adults are asked to remain in the Library but not in the workshops due to space restrictions.

Abel will be demonstrating how to make mosaic coasters, although the materials used are child friendly, it is best to wear appropriate clothing. Children will be able to take home their work of art and photographs of each mosaic coaster made will be displayed in the library after the event.

Please register your interest and collect a ticket from the Banstead Library help desk as places will be limited. A telephone number will be requested in case it's required on the day.
