Courses & Workshops


We offer half or full day courses either in the Gallery or Spinning Mill Studios. Learn a new skill, rediscover an existing one and lose yourself for a few hours in the tranquil atmosphere of the Mill. All our courses are taught in small groups by experienced artists and makers, all of whom have exhibited with us and regularly teach. Courses include basic materials (or you can bring your own), refreshments (think cake!) and the full day ones include lunch and a glass of wine.
