Classes & Clubs

The Gallery provides a venue where local artists can create and share their work.

The studio has 14 2ft x 4ft lightweight tables which can be quickly set out. Groups should usually be not more than 8 people and masks should be worn when moving around. They may be removed when working in one place.

All tables should be cleaned with spray provided and carefully replaced in the storage area after use. Please bring coverings if your activity is messy and your own water containers as we don't provide these.

Regular classes and workshops covering all styles of painting are usually held throughout the year. We are hoping to restart classes in 2022 and clubs in September 2021

From June, government regulations allowing, if you want to use the studio for any art activity, for music groups or meetings, please contact the Coquetdale Art Gallery by phone 01669 621557 or email
