Each month we will be bringing in an artist to run different sessions using different mediums which have been inspired by the art within our Collection.

Each £5 ticket also includes a cup of tea or coffee!

Saturday 1 October 2022: Watercolour Portraits

Experiment with watercolours to create a portrait of your own as you take influence from the monotone paintings in our collection.

Saturday 5 November 2022: Clay-Modelling

Inspired by the sculptural work of Betty Miller and paintings of William D. Dring’s ‘At the Coal Face’ in our Collection, we will explore self-hardening clay as a modelling tool to create portraits in both tile relief form and as a miniature bust.

Saturday 3 December 2022: Charcoal and Beyond

Explore the use of light and shadow as a method of adding drama and atmosphere into your artworks by developing your techniques in working with charcoal, graphite, chalks and paint as we look closely at portraits underground.
