Discover the Artist in You!
Come and explore the art of creativity and sample a feast of creative techniques and processes, with local artists’ Louise Ramsay, Kelly Eastwood and Theo Jenner.
Our 6-week series of taster workshops, for adults, will explore different ways to kickstart your creativity and introduce you to new ways of responding to the world around you through art and crafts.
Whether you’re a complete beginner or someone who wants to rediscover your artistic flair, our workshops offer you a fantastic opportunity to learn new skills, relax, unwind and meet like-minded people in a fun and supportive environment.
Each week, there will be a different creative focus, from observational drawing to painting, collage and origami. You can sign up to any of the workshops, or better yet, why not try all six! Reserve your space here.
These events are free but we’d love you to make a donation to help cover the cost.
