ART VAN GO Creative Workshops

  • The workshops are held in the ART VAN GO gallery space offering an inspirational environment to work in. They generally run from 10am to 4pm unless otherwise stated and we would ask you to allow plenty of time to settle in before the workshop starts.
  • The Studios will be open from 9am to welcome you to the workshop, and will remain open at the end of the day for as long as is reasonably required - so there should be no panics!
  • Limited parking is available at The Studios (10 cars). Once our area is full, side road parking is available a short walk away. Drop off equipment first.
  • If B&B accommodation is required, please let us know. We have lists of B&B’s in different price ranges and localities, including one or two within walking distance
  • Maximum numbers for workshops is 12 unless otherwise stated. Some subjects will need more space per person so the maximum numbers will be reduced accordingly - this will be stated in the workshop description.
  • A list of equipment to bring with you will be sent to you near the date. Any specialist materials will be included in the workshop cost wherever possible.


You will be welcomed with a tea or coffee, and refreshments are available for you to help yourself to all day. Lunch can be ordered for you, on your behalf, and collected from Coasters - the excellent local café.
Of course you can bring your own lunch or you can buy from the local Co-op, Simmons bakers, Trussells deli or from Coasters – the shops are only a 5min walk away.

 Please advise us in advance if you have any special requirements.
