'As artists we are inspired by many things, often by our emotions and by using our senses; sight, sound, touch, smell and taste. It may only be a small spark of inspiration but it is the start of a creative journey mixing ideas, observations and emotions with practical skills. Your journey will be all the more enjoyable when you share it with others on the same path who may become lifelong friends.' JM  


We have some wonderful, inspiring artists leading workshops in 2022 which are suitable for all abilities.

See our 'Workshops and Demonstrations' page for more information.
