What do I need to bring?

When you book you will receive more information closer to the time but in most cases, you will not need to bring anything. Materials are covered in the cost of the course. You may however wish to purchase some materials for working at home and we can help with a suitable list and can even order these in for you. This can be discussed once the course is underway.

You may have some drawings, photographs or other images that you would like to bring with you to work from, this will be suggested in the course outline if that is the case.


If you book Tuesday courses, a ‘supervised revision’ and homework session is provided for children aged P5 and higher. The service is free for the first child with a fee applying to each child thereafter. We will provide either a teacher or a senior pupil at the school to supervise your child while they get on with homework or revision. Phones will be turned off and the emphasis will be on study rather than play. The room is in close proximity to where the Art workshops are going on.

So I hope that all of the above has convinced you to Give it a Go.
