  • Booked a "day" drawing course here. It was quite nice- the class was small, the tools provided, and the tutor very nice and respectful, allowing us time to try out his suggestions and to reflect on our attempts. It was very enjoyable to see the other people's work and to draw them. One thing that would prevent me from going again is the cost- for the price tag, I was expecting a bit more tuition above quite generic recommendations.
  • To be honest, I wasn't too impressed. Maybe I'm unrealistic in my expectations. Not enough to see considering the entrance fee of almost £7
  • Well worth a visit if you are in the area, make sure you have plenty of time though to enjoy, lovely building as well.
  • A great art gallery to visit!
  • Wonderful art space with interesting exhibitions. A lovely building, too. Definitely worth a visit if you see an exhibition that takes your interest.
