Artist-led Adult Workshops
Workshops have gone online!
As 20-21 Visual Arts Centre is closed during the current Coronavirus pandemic, we’re sharing some art and crafts in the form of instructional videos made by our own staff, who are accomplished artists in their own right.
Wirework Tree Pendant
We’ve got a great craft instructional video for you here, as Learning Development Assistant Jen shows you how to create your own wirework Tree of Life pendant. Take a look and maybe have a go yourself!
Untutored Life Drawing
Brush up on your life drawing skills at our friendly, untutored Saturday classes for adults. All abilities are welcome, from beginner to advanced, and it’s only £6 per session! As participants draw a nude model, please note the lower age limit of 18 years. These sessions are very popular, so make sure you book on well in advance.
All sessions run from 10:30am to 12:30pm. Age 18+ only. Advanced payment and booking is essential.

‘Prod and Poke’ Artist’s Forum with Susan Simpson
Date of next meeting to be announced
Our informal artist’s forums take place every month, led by artist and photographer Susan Simpson. The sessions are held in the gallery café, which offers an informal setting to look at and debate topics relevant to the creative community. There will also be opportunities to discuss one another’s work and ideas. So come along, grab a coffee and maybe a delicious homemade cake from our café and join in.
Please note that during the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic Susan Simpson’s artist’s forum has found a new home on our 20-21 Visual Arts Community Art group on Facebook. Why not pop over and join in the chat?
