Workshops are a way to extend our skills, we learn better ways , and refine our art making. We can also learn and experience new skills in a workshop outside our chosen field, not only extending our practice but stimulating us in our usual chosen field.

There is great satisfaction in creating good artwork, satisfaction that goes to the core of our being, our workshops foster the making of art and the appreciation of each others art making in the presence of expert guidance from the tutor.

In 2017 we also introduced short courses.

Colour, Creativity and Abstraction


Saturday 28 & Sunday 29 March 2020


Gabrielle Jones


10am – 4pm

Member fee:


Non-member fee:


Closing date:

Friday 13 March, 5pm


In this fun and challenging two day workshop Gabrielle will walk you through a number of fun exercises, extended thinking methods, tools and imagination games to develop your ability to make interesting abstract work; move your realistic paintings away from the predictable; or improve composition and subject ideas. During the workshop you will use observation of real objects to examine colour attributes, and explore abstraction and creativity to improve your painting, stimulate creativity and generate ideas for on-going work.

Gabrielle will support and encourage you to explore your creative limits, whether you’re a beginner or more advanced artist. If you’re wanting to break out of your current painting rut, reach the next level in your art making, move from realism to abstraction, or simply wish to explore abstraction and your creativity, then this is the Masterclass for you!




This workshop has been cancelled in reponse to the Covid19 virus. Apologies for any inconvenience.
