The aim of the group is to work creatively in good company, in a variety of media, while developing our skill and knowledge.

It is fun to paint, draw or otherwise create images with friends who are happy to advise on any problems and share their knowledge. Most weeks we just do our own thing but we also love to try out new media in our monthly workshop sessions.

We enjoy the peace and concentration of our first hour, followed by a refreshment break, which gives an opportunity to look at each other’s work and have a chat.

We warmly welcome new members - do come and give it a go!
