2019-2020 Dates


Weekly classes


Block 1: Wed 28th/ Fri 30th August  to Wed 2nd/ Fri 4th Oct.

£10 deposit payable by 12th/14th June secures your place for the next 6 week course.

Full payment of £60 due by 6th Sept.

Preparation for this block: over the summer break build up a store of inspirational reference material such as:

sketches in a sketchbook;

collage items in a box;

words in a diary;

cuttings in a paper bag;

a mixture of all these things.

You'll spend some time with these things planning an amazing 6-week Magnum Opus.




Holiday Sketchbook Circle

If you plan to take part, please bring in a sketchbook (bought or homemade) with at least 6 pages in it, and the first page filled in. You'll need to commit to doing one page every 2 weeks then posting or delivering your sketchbook to the next person.


Peebles Arts Festival

Do you want to exhibit in Woodworks, host an open house or studio, organise and deliver an art-based activity such as Art Battle or Land Art on Tweed Green, display your works in a shop window or do anything else as part of this year's Arts Festival (23/8-1/9)?

Contact Cayleigh Gardener or Maggie McKay at the Eastgate NOW! They're keen to hear from anyone who wants to be involved.


Private Facebook page

Are you on fb? Why not share your work with other class members, request feedback, pass on information and opportunities. "Like" Claire Blyth's Art page ( not Claire Blyth's  page) Your name then shows up in a list of likers and I can invite you from there into the group.
