Programme for 2022 Workshops 

The Sandpiper Studio opened in 2007 and we are pleased to have had many renowned artists from the UK and abroad sharing their tips and techniques with our students. These visiting artists are specialists in their field and provide an exciting range of workshops and demonstrations to instruct and inspire.

They are usually held on Fridays and Saturdays and cover specific subjects and mediums. The workshops are suitable for all abilities unless otherwise stated, with the emphasis on having fun while learning. A selection of teas, coffee, cakes and biscuits are included and available throughout the day.

The studio can accommodate up to 14 students with a desk each in a workshop and approximately 30 students when watching a demonstration.

For students travelling long distances and in need of local accommodation, a wide range of hotels, guest houses and travel lodges can be found within a few minutes drive from the studio. Contact Julie for more information.
