All of these classes are incredibly interactive and produce large pieces of work to take home at the end, and are suitable for the ages of 5-12 years old.

Rebecca from Bee Struthers Fine Art will be holding all the workshops and is completely PVG certified. However we do ask that parents remain on the premises while the class is underway, there will be teas, coffees, and cakes available to purchase from the cafe.
