Try something new or refresh something old!

About the BEGIN. series…

This series of experiences are “taster” sessions & aimed at complete beginners or those of you want a “refresher” – developed as an ideal way to explore a wide variety of artistic methods and media, learning new artistic skills, discovering what you enjoy most, and developing creative ideas.

Each month enjoy a relaxing afternoon and explore your creativity – Dip in and out of the series as you choose – or do them all!

Classes are structured, instructive, & professional – yet social and fun at the same time. So whether you come on your own or with a few friends, we aim to make the experience friendly, fun and enjoyable.

What to expect…

Each month join us for tea, coffee and piece of cake – and take part in a couple of hours socialising with others and immersing yourself in a “new skill”

These sessions provide an opportunity to “try” something arty or creative, develop new skills, explore new materials before embarking on a more in-depth course – or not!

There won’t be any pressure to create a realistic representation of what’s in front of you. This workshop is simply about experimenting with your materials and letting your intuition guide you.

Your finished artwork could be a perfect gift or simply hang it on your wall to admire and let it inspire you!

This month’s BEGIN.
