Rural Arts gives you the opportunity to learn or develop an artistic skill in a relaxed, creative environment. We want your day with us to be relaxed, offering you a bit of escapism and the chance to get to know like-minded people (plus there’s the bonus of getting to take something you have lovingly made home with you!).

Get to know others in the group whilst enjoying a drink in The Courthouse Café before heading through to the studio to start getting creative! The Café will be open throughout the day for you to get drinks and delicious lunches and cakes. Visit The Courthouse Café page to view our menu.
