We run an expansive programme of pop-up workshops bringing creative practitioners into our Artspace in Bath to bring all manner of making and creating to our space.
Our pop-up workshops tend to be one-off sessions (rather than our ongoing class timetable), though we are of course happy to revisit topics by popular demand. Workshops may be seasonal or we just may have a workshop running on an interesting topic because we managed to convince a brilliant practitioner to fit something into their busy schedule with us.
Class sizes are deliberately small and our workshops are always relaxed, friendly, supportive and lots of fun.
Keep your eyes peeled for our upcoming schedule of workshops here and book early as places are limited!
You can subscribe to our mailing list for updates on upcoming workshops.
