Activities

Workshops and Demonstrations

Popular events in our annual programme are demonstrations and workshops, led by a member or, more usually, by an invited local artist.

Demonstrations are held during our regular sessions, lasting around two hours. Workshops typically run from 10:00 to 16:00. We also allocate occasional regular sessions to talks by members; a variety of topics are covered, for example a particular technique, artist or aspect of art theory.

We thank all those who have led these events and shared their skills, knowledge and enthusiasm. Website details of local artists are listed in the Links section.

A list of some recent workshops and demonstrations follows, with examples of work done by attending members.
