Workshops & Events
New workshops coming soon.
Thanks to funding from Arts Council England we have been able to develop a series of online workshops facilitated by your favourite local artists. More details will be available here soon.
Come and learn new skills and join in with our various activities in our continually evolving series of workshops, talks and other events. These lively events relate to our exhibition programme and are a great way to gain further insights into the artists and their work or learn new skills in a warm and friendly environment.

REINDEER NEEDLE FELT WORKSHOP
WITH LYDIA NEEDLE
5 December 10-4 pm
These little reindeer’s would be perfect to go on the mantelpiece over the Christmas or to give as a gift.
This class is suitable for complete for beginners but is also a great ‘next step’ project if you’ve already made a bear or hare with Lydia. You will make sculptural legs, use armatures for the antlers and learn about colour application. At the end of the day you get to take your creation home together with the skills needed to go on and make more lovely reindeer. All the materials you need and tools to use in the class are included.
