Classes and Workshops for Adults at The Art Room

Workshops at The Art Room offer an interesting and eclectic mix of 2d and 3d craft activities using a wide range of art and craft materials. Practical and creative guidance is always on hand and a supportive atmosphere allows you to explore creatively with confidence. Activities are designed for everyone to enjoy; those with previous experience and those with absolutely no creative experience at all. You are involved quickly and fully in the activity of the day, making use of your time as completely as possible.


Whilst making something pleasing is a central aspect of a workshop, Sarah sees the act of creativity as a worthwhile goal in itself; regardless of the end result, total absorption in a creative process offers benefits to you in terms of mental and physical relaxation. A mobile phone-free zone, a workshop at The Art Room gives you the chance to switch off for a while, literally and metaphorically!


Workshops are sociable, friendly occasions, alive with chat and laughter, an opportunity for people with a shared interest to work side-by-side in a companionable way.


Hot drinks (including decaf options), water and biscuits are available, with the addition of tasty homemade bakes for workshops running all morning, and a delicious, home-made light lunch for full day workshops (as advertised).


Advice on health and safety and instruction on how to use equipment is given at the start of each session. Some classes or workshops will require you to bring a piece of equipment (such as a hairdryer) or items to support the session’s activity (such as objects for still life observation) but you would be made aware of this in the description of the class or workshop and in the Booking Form.


Sarah has comprehensive public liability insurance, and DBS, Food Hygiene and First Aid certificates.


Details of all forthcoming classes until and workshops can be found below. Places in each session are limited so advance booking is always a good idea.
