We run a range of workshops throughout the year - when these become available they will be listed below.
Saturday 22 June, Drop-in Gallery Workshop, 12-3pm, free admission.
Focusing on nature, kids aged 7+ years and all visitors to our gallery are invited to join exhibiting artist, Anushiya Sundaralingham, in creating a ‘tree of life’ in our gallery space to be part of her exhibition.
Looking at different types of trees and leaves, you will make a mixed media tree for our gallery space together, and experimenting with colour, texture and shape, decorate the tree with your own beautiful and unique colourful leaves.
This is an informal gallery workshop, open to everyone of all abilities.
Saturday 29 June, 10am-4pm, Cost £30
Learn about printmaking in two informal printmaking classes with exhibiting artist Anushiya Sundaralingham.
Dry point printmaking is one of the most direct of the intaglio printing techniques. Lines (images) are scratched directly into a plastic with a sharp tool, ink is applied and then print is taken. You can bring your drawings and images to the class to explore and experiment ideas to create a number of images. This is suitable for absolute beginners.
