Friday Arts Club - Full Day Special

Friday Arts Club - Full Day Special

Do you dream of finding more time in your busy life to be creative? Of working uninterrupted for a full day in an art studio filled with natural daylight?

Why not come and create in an atmospheric, relaxed environment and use our facilities to work on your latest projects? It’s simple – bring the art work of your choice, share the space with others and spend the day creating.

Whether you want to sculpt, paint, draw, doodle, or make – we will be able to accommodate you.

This is an untutored session but help is available. Polly and Jane who are both practising artists, will be on hand to help out, but will also be working alongside you on their own projects.

Polly has been developing her love of portraiture and figurative work over the past 4 years in charcoal, pastels, watercolour and oils. Jane is interested in photography, printmaking and drawing and ‘finding the extraordinary in the ordinary’.

Should this full day prove popular, we will consider extending the Friday arts club as full a day in the studio on a regular basis.
