Creative Workshops

Everyone is an artist, and in 2018 the artist in you will have the chance to try your hand at a variety of creative techniques. Our creative workshops allow children and adults to participate in a variety of hands-on workshops to whet the artistic appetite. Assisted and inspired by local artists, a variety of creative workshops will run throughout the day.

Thank you to all the artists for volunteering their time in running these Workshops.
