Workshops September to December 2020

The Sunbury Gallery runs a year-round programme of workshops which cater for all abilities from beginners to seasoned professionals.

 

For the remainder of 2020, our programme includes Embroidery, Willow Weaving & Christmas Gift workshops.
 

  • All workshops are individually priced. Price includes all materials & kits as appropriate and a welcome tea / coffee on arrival.

  • In light of COVID 19 and social distancing guidelines, spaces on workshops are limited so it is recommended to book early to ensure a place.

  • All workshops run from 10:00 to 15:00 (unless stated otherwise). All participants are asked to arrive by 09:45 so workshops can start on time.

  • For all workshops, a lunch break is taken at a suitable time. To comply with social distancing guidelines, lunch will be taken in the Gallery. To save time, lunch orders are taken on arrival from the menu for which a charge is made.

  • Payment for all workshops will be taken at the time of booking. We will refund all workshops where a cancellation is required due to COVID 19 reasons and for unforeseen personal reasons only. 

  • Public car parking is available in either the Walled Garden carpark or the Meadow carpark for which there is a charge of £2 per day. Disabled parking bays are available in the Walled Garden car park close to the entrance to the Gallery.
