Art tuition

 2017 classes resume the week of Monday 9th January. If you are interested in joining a class please contact Janet.

“The thing I love most is the freedom you get to experiment with new techniques and materials.  I never would have made some of my favourite pieces if I had been working on my own.  Each class is just so absorbing, I leave each week with my head full of new ideas to try next time!”
– M. Thomlinson
