Workshops and Other Events



 Pictured above: work by artists offering workshops for the 2018-19 programme.

For some years now a popular series of workshops has been held each year, organised by the programme officer(s). Each workshop is tutored by an artist of local or national standing. Subjects cover a wide spectrum of painting media and techniques.

Numbers are limited to 16 members (minimum attendance 10). If insufficient members apply for a workshop, non-members may attend. 

Venues and times

Workshops are held in either Loders or Salwayash village halls, just outside Bridport (less than 10 mins). They usually commence at 10 am and finish at 4 pm.

Cost and materials

The cost per workshop is £25 (£30 for non-members).  Members usually need to take their own art materials. They will be advised what to take to a particular workshop by the organiser.
