In the Coquetdale Arts Centre Studio we host Saturday classes for up to 14 people taught by an artist who has expertise to share.

You do not need to be a member to attend a class and beginners are always welcome. Each class costs £20 and runs from 10am to 3pm, with a lunch break of course. Feel free to bring materials and photos relevant to the subject. We also have a small supply of art materials and images available in the studio.

To book, telephone the gallery during opening hours

The 2020 classes will be published soon.
