Spent a day learning to silk paint. Completed 3 small projects to take home. Excellent activity in the company of 4 other ladies. Instructions clear and nice relaxed atmosphere. Coffee and cake too! I would recommend this to anyone wishing to try something new. Looking forward to trying some other workshops and trying out my new skills at home.

I arrived in the midst of the Viking village being established at the front door - it... More

Well worth a visit. There are so many different pieces of artwork and craftwork to see and a huge range of prices starting at less than £5. Lots of ideas for gifts and you can buy your cards here too. It's a lovely place to browse in comfort. You can often see the owner working on her own art. I... More

I just love that you found the gallery both inspirational and therapeutic, because that was always my mission. Art should be accessible to everyone and I hope that your review brings people who are a little unsure of the welcome they might receive into my wee gallery. Thank you so much! More
