Making a mosaic Easter Cross.

These 8 short tutorials (2-5 minutes each) led by Andi T will show you how to make an Easter Cross mosaic picture.

Andi will guide you through the entire process demonstrating how each part is done…and the videos are made to be viewed on your phone!!

If you want to engage in these tutorials you will need have:

     2 pieces of paper same size (A5 ish!!)

a pair of scissors

a pencil

a glue stick

2 oil pastels (black and brown)

a piece of kitchen roll

some baby oil

some plastic tubs, or similar!!

a supermarket magazine

Using a ‘cut capo’ in worship.

These 6 short tutorials (6 – 10 minutes) led by Nick will show you how to use a cut capo, some new ways of playing chords and features how you can use your cut capo in a different worship song each session.

The videos also include simple chord diagrams alongside the video to help learn how to play.

If you want to engage in these tutorials you will need to buy a cut capo. It is quite important that you get the correct one! The capo you require is one that covers 3 strings only and is also sometimes called a ‘partial capo’. You can buy these online (see below), but I personally recommend you support your local music shop.

It might be nice for you, or your worship leader at church to buy the capo for them, to recognise that you value their talent, and are interested in seeing it grow.

It should also be noted that these tutorials are not intended for beginners, but for people who can already play a guitar at some level from ok to very competent!

A good session to start with is the extra session, as it goes over the 4 main chords for using a cut capo.
