Art Classes,
Workshops & Demonstrations
For ALL abilities

We provide a full programme of visiting artists from the UK and abroad


Welcome to a new year, new beginnings and fresh hope of meeting our family and friends again.

Spring is just around the corner, waiting to burst through the ground with vivid greens and daffodil yellow, we are poised with paintbrush in hand!


As artists we are inspired by many things, often by our emotions and by using our senses; sight, sound, touch, smell and taste. 

It may only be a small spark of inspiration but it is the start of a creative journey mixing ideas, observations and emotions with practical skills that may last weeks, months or even years.

I hope you are excited about starting this year with new hope, inspiration and expectations for your artistic future. 


We have some wonderful, inspiring artists leading workshops at the studio in 2021 which are suitable for all abilities.

See our 'Workshops and Demonstrations' page for more information.
