Art classes, Demonstrations and Exhibitions

We have now resumed classes and workshops.

Dates and subjects will be included in the tables below once they have been confirmed.

We host a programme of art classes and an annual exhibition of full members' work.
The classes and workshops are open to all. These events cover a wide range of media and subjects, and are held from September through to May. The art classes are held weekly on Wednesday mornings at Heswall Hall and workshops are held at the British Legion, Pensby Road, Heswall each month from September to May.


The Workshops are held at The British Legion, 78 Pensby Road, Heswall, CH60 7RF. They run from 10am – 4pm. The cost is expected to be about £10 for members and £12 for non-members (inclusive of hot drinks and biscuits all day), sometimes a lesser fee applies for the morning demonstration only. We advise that you bring a packed lunch. Everybody is welcome.

To reserve a place or for more information: Contact: Kevin Adams at: kdadams@hotmail.co.uk


The classes provide an opportunity to work with a tutor and gather new ideas and to practice your art and to meet other artists in a convivial atmosphere. Any classes without tutors are a continuation of the previous week's class allowing members time to continue with the topic.

The classes are held most Wednesdays and the venue has now changed to the Methodist Hall, Telegraph Road, Heswall from 9.30 -12.00. The cost is subsidised at £3.50. Please bring your own refreshments. Everybody is welcome.
