These workshops are part of a programme of Creative Workshops the Horsebridge is launching supported by a great community of local artists and teachers.  The workshops will take place in our large, light and airy Studio and our aim is that each session will give people the confidence to try a new skill and take part in creative and enjoyable activities as part of new group.   

Thanks to so many of our tutors offering their services for free, and support from Arts Council England, we are able to offer the workshops on a Pay What You Can donation basis.  We hope that through these donations we will be able to extend these activities and make them part of a permanent creative programme at the Horsebridge.
