Weekend workshops and master classes all year

If you prefer to immerse yourself for a day rather than attend a weekly class, why not join one of our many weekend workshops? Held mostly on a Sunday, the workshops and master classes cover a range of subject and media. Monthly workshops are held in acrylics with either Larissa Blake or Paul McCarthy, and watercolours with Jane Blundell or Susie Murphie. New workshops are added regularly, so check back in from time to time to see what's new on the program.

And if you found last year's work Christmas Party uninspiring, why not do something creative instead this year? We can host groups of up to 40 and everyone gets to be hands on and create their own artwork in a fun catered art party!
