Marion’s Art Group on Skye

Art Group meetings are currently suspended because of COVID-19. If you sign up for the newsletter below, I’ll be able to let you know when I restart.

My fortnightly-ish art group meets at the Waternish Hall from 12 to 3.

It’s £15 a session including materials or £10 if you bring your own art supplies. Each session will be a standalone, starting with an activity followed by time for help with individual projects. Beginners and visitors welcome. Bring lunch if you wish and a contribution towards tea/coffee/milk/biscuits or a flask with your own.

Sign up for my emailed art group newsletter here for updates and reminders. I will also use this to let you know if a session is rescheduled or cancelled for some reason eg snow.
