Workshops and Other Events

For some years now a popular series of workshops has been held each year, organised by several members of the committee. Each workshop is tutored by an artist of local or national standing. Subjects cover a wide spectrum of painting media and techniques. 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 and are limited to 16 members (minimum attendance 10). If insufficient members apply for a workshop, non-members may attend. Members usually need to take their own art materials. They will be advised what to take to a particular workshop by the organiser. The cost per workshop is £25 (£30 for non-members). Workshops with nationally known tutors or a life model for instance cost more.
