Monthly Meetings

These are held on the second Wednesday of most months at St Georges Hall, Tiverton. Doors open at 6.45pm, for meetings between 7.00pm and 9.00pm.

These meetings include demonstrations, talks and critiques of members’ work by professional artists.

We have a tea/coffee break at about 8pm for members to chat and socialise, for about 20 minutes.

There are no meetings in April or August, when exhibitions are held, and November’s meeting hosts the AGM and Bring and Share Supper
