In our Let’s Create Art workshops, the aim is to introduce participants to various artistic technique, working on the principle that art is a form of expression. The focus is on creative expression and relaxation instead of aiming for technical perfection.

Workshops are free of charge and we make every effort to be inclusive – we aim to provide access to opportunities and resources for people who might otherwise be excluded or marginalised.
