Workshops are run monthly covering members interests and also providing the opportunity to try new mediums and crafts. New members and visitors are always welcome. Most workshops are suitable hfor beginners as well as those with more experience. The venue is usually the Rangers Centre classroom at Brodick Castle, but occasionally at a tutor’s studio.

Past workshops have covered landscapes, still life, wildlife, portraiture, stone-carving, lino-cutting, silk painting, machine embroidery, beading, mosaics, felting, batik, tapestry weaving, pottery, rush weaving, stained glass and photography.
