About Us

Our story so far…

We are a local community group where we encourage all creative people to get involved in something creative whatever their level, experience or genre is.

Rural artists can be isolated, our group aims to get people out from their kitchens and into a supportive space with other like-minded creative people where ideas can be shared and nurtured, and their creative work will be celebrated whatever their genre.

We aim;
to showcase the creative works of the group through events, exhibitions and collaborative projects locally and nationally.

to support group members to find the correct platform for their creative work, eg. Publishing a book, providing workshops, craft fairs or art sales.

to facilitate workshops to teach and share creative skills.

Our members have a wide range of experience in various artforms: painting, writing, photography, textiles, sculpting, cardmaking, pottery and more…
