Wake Up & See The Sunrise_edited_edited.jpg


This Inspiration Day will nurture your soul & awaken your creativity.  The day will include loose drawing exercises to free your inhibitions, positive affirmations & a guided visualisation so you can set your mind free!  There will be an opportunity to walk on the beach if you wish to, and take part in creative art journalling activities where all materials will be provided.  Refreshments are available in the gallery but you are welcome to bring a packed lunch if you wish.  We will be working in the cosy studio that overlooks the beach just outside so we will be surrounded by birds & wildlife and possibly a visiting seal!  No art experience is required for this, and guidance will be provided if required. There will be only 4 participants in the group so it will be small & friendly.

This Inspiration Day runs frequently right through the year.  Check the What's On schedule below or call us to arrange a booking.

Young Painter


Indulge yourself in a creative day painting, printmaking or clay modelling or take home a handmade book of your memories of Hoy.

You'll be working in the studio overlooking the beach, with professional tuition, lots of lovely materials & freshly roasted coffee with homebaked treats.

Book & Schedule Dates to fit in with your Holiday



Create your own personal souvenir of your holiday on Hoy! On this workshop you will learn how to make a simple book and then create pages of small artworks inspired by your holiday here on Hoy. This is suitable for all levels of art experience and complete novices are very welcome. We will be using different kinds of Paper, a selection of Fabrics and Yarns, a range of Colouring materials along with scissors & glue and you can also include 'found' materials such as shells, grasses and seed heads. Drinks are available during the session, and you are welcome to bring a packed lunch with you. You can choose a date that fits in with your holiday plans - just select a date from the calendar when you book. If you can't find a suitable date, just let us know - we can probably fit you in somewhere! Note: For 2021, we will not be running any workshops until July (after UK lockdown lifts). We will be working in the lovely light-filled studio right next to the sea at Kirkhope Bay. You'll have a spectacular view of the sea and the beach. The community bus stops a few hundred yards away which links with most ferries (please check your timetables!). The ferry is a 20 minute drive away. Class runs 10 till 4 (but let us know if this doesn't work with your transport & we can adjust!)
