Art Classes with John Sutcliffe - Starting in September

Throughout lockdown, John Sutcliffe has been holding these classes on Zoom – but we know that some people would prefer face-to-face tuition. So we’re excited to announce that classes will be recommencing in the Peel Centre.

If this sounds like it’s for you, come along and try your hand at a world of different mediums – from watercolour, to sculpture, print making, digital media and art history. Suitable for all – from complete beginners to those wanting to improve their skills and try new things! To discover more about John, just see his website by clicking here.

You can get involved for just £20 per session (£15 for Friends of the Barn). See our website for further details, where you can also book your places.
