In addition to regular demonstrations we hold six or seven workshops durng the year, run by well known artists such as Brian Petrie, Jim Dunbar and Jean Martin to name but a few. Workshops provide opportunities for members to work in small groups under the guidance of an artist. This type of experience allows for the development of new skills and the chance to try out different techniques and mediums. Workshops are usually held on a Saturday to allow those who work during the week to attend. Members pay a small additional fee of approximately £12 per workshop to assist in paying the visiting artist's expenses.
The photographs in this gallery aim to capture some of the key themes and experiences of our workshops.
