(Photo above, Jenny and Elaine TAS workshop organisers).

Workshops are held throughout the year from 10am to 4pm on Saturdays at various venues in and around Tiverton. These provide a great opportunity to spend the whole day working with an experienced tutor. Workshops often provide a “taster” of the type of courses provided by a local artist.

All TAS members are welcome but booking is essential as places are limited. Once you have given the organisers your name and email address you will be contacted to advise if you have been successful and had a place reserved. Payment must then be made promptly by either cheque or BACS transfer to confirm your place.

Costs £30 (unless otherwise stated).

How to win a TAS apron

TAS member Shirly Walton and her TAS apron.

Members admired our TAS aprons but were told they would need to win one to get one!

We’d better explain …

Workshop attendees are invited to show their work at the AGM in November. The work can either be completed at a workshop or developed later. This allows all members to see what we have achieved in our workshops and hopefully be encourage to join us. All TAS members are invited to vote on their favourite by placing a token by the piece. The person with the most votes is awarded the prestigious Workshop Winner art apron.
