Over the years we have hosted a variety of arts and crafts related short courses and one-off day/half-day/hourly workshops for all age* groups, skill levels and ambitions (with ‘Taster Sessions’ often offered free of charge). Many of these courses & sessions are independently delivered by highly-skilled resident artists or makers, with broad teaching experience, as a vital supplement to their income. The intention has always been to evolve and expand the range of guidance offered, bring together like-minded productive folk, and mix relaxed creative activities with enjoyable and stimulating career development, while serving the fundamental artistic needs of the local community. To date educational activities have included life drawing, oil or acrylic painting, digital photography & manipulation, graphic design, creative upholstery, ceramics / pot-throwing, glass fusion, mask-making / cartoons / out-of-school sessions for kids, linocut printing, drama workshops, Yoga classes, flower arranging, lantern making, stone & wood carving, and mixed-media experimental sculpture.
Many of our courses operated during the working week within office hours, with some provision for evening or weekend sessions (where possible) for any would-be students limited by working full-time. Naturally all courses and workshops are subject to demand, and may be adapted to suit group bookings on application, so please get in touch to discuss potential arrangements and any suggestions you may have for online tuition services.
* Please note: in the past we have hosted activities for younger children, but currently we can only host ages 12+ owing to various Health & Safety issues / hazards relating to significant risks in the building. We apologize for any disappointment.
