Due to the current COVID-19 situation all AVA workshops are cancelled for the foreseeable future. We ask all members to keep well, keep painting or making, and keep in touch with one another by phone.
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 for beginners as well as those with more experience.
The venue is usually the Rangers Centre classroom at Brodick Castle, but occasionally at Lamlash High School, Whiting Bay Hall or a tutor’s studio.
Workshops cost per day
£25 for members
£35 for non-members
