Review of our latest workshops,Talks & Events.


May 2024
On 11th May we held a Beginners Lino Cutting and Printing Workshop, led by Naomi Hulatt and assisted by Sue Barnes.  Naomi brought along examples of her excellent work and demonstrated the principles and techniques on cutting and printing. All those attending were then assisted by both Naomi and Sue to create their own finished work. For many, this was the first time that they had tried working in this style and medium, and some excellent creations were produced.  All participants commented on how much they had enjoyed the workshop.
















A little bit about our Society and our members…….

We are a group of enthusiastic artists who come together to take part in workshops, demonstrations and talks, as well as to exhibit and sell our works at our Annual Easter Exhibition. We also have three small groups who meet up to paint together, two groups at The Parish Room, Yealmpton and one group in The Revelstoke Room, The Village Hall, Noss Mayo.

The Society is committed to encouraging an interest in all genres of painting within the local community. We aim to include all abilities and would welcome new artists – both the young and the more mature, beginners and more experienced.

Why not become part of our Society, it’s only £15 to join? For more information on joining please visit our membership page or use our contact link below.
