Arts Alive: Artist Workshop and Demonstration Timetable


The Arts Alive Festival weekend includes a unique opportunity for festival-goers to try a wide range of artforms.

Dozens of professional artists will deliver free demonstrations and workshops in their studios and across the site on both Saturday and Sunday. Festival goers are invited to get their hands dirty with ceramics, watercolor, pastels and paint. All teaching artists’ workshops and demonstrations are free during Arts Alive, but if you find a new passion or re-ignite an old one you can sign-up to receive information about our regular program of workshops or book yourself a place with the artists of your choice at the end of the demonstration.
