**Join Our Social Art Sessions: Unleash Your Creativity!**

Welcome to our fun and engaging art sessions, designed to spark your creativity and provide a delightful social experience! Each session offers a unique theme and is perfect for beginners, unless specified otherwise.

 

Let's explore what makes our sessions special:

**Adult-Only Evenings:** Our evening sessions, especially those in pubs or featuring alcohol, are crafted for adults. Enjoy a relaxed atmosphere where you can unwind, create, and socialize.

**Family-Friendly Daytime Sessions:** We love welcoming families! Children aged 8 and above can join in the fun when accompanied by an adult. These sessions are perfect for spending quality time together and exploring art in a supportive environment.

**Children's Classes:** Tailored for our younger artists, children as young as 4 are welcome to discover the joy of art. For those aged 8 or above, feel free to leave them in our capable hands – we are fully DBS checked and insured for your peace of mind.

**All-Inclusive Experience:** We provide everything you need – from materials to aprons. Plus, our fully guided sessions ensure you leave with a masterpiece you're proud of. And the best part? Your creation is yours to keep!

**Prosecco Events:** Add a sparkle to your art session! Our prosecco events include a complimentary drinks menu with prosecco, soft drinks, and hot beverages, enhancing your artistic journey.

**Cake Sessions:** Indulge in creativity and cakes! Enjoy a selection of cakes, including options for vegan and gluten-free diets, along with a complimentary menu of hot and soft drinks.

Whether you're an aspiring artist or just looking for a fun way to spend your time, our sessions are the perfect blend of art, socializing, and enjoyment. We can't wait to welcome you and help you create something beautiful!

Designed for Grown-Ups

These sessions are either adult only or designed for more confident older children. Unless an event specifies ADULTS ONLY, then technically any age can attend but please note that some may be more technical.
