A fantastically creative course which combines the chance to make art using a variety of materials and techniques and the opportunity to cross over into craft and design, using both traditional and new methods. The only limit is your imagination. Why not try something new? No previous experience is necessary, but you will definitely complete the course buzzing with new ideas full of enthusiasm for your next project.

This is your weekly opportunity to experiment and have a go in a friendly and supportive art group, everyone is welcome – beginners and more experienced artists alike.

“I’ve learnt more in the first 10 minutes of this class than I have ever done, it’s great to be shown a variety of techniques that I can use again at home” – Participant

Please make sure that you have a basic set of art materials for every session, and a space to get creative in at home.
