Christmas Painting workshop:
Normal workshop but, to make it festive, those attending are invited to bring some Xmas buffet items to share.

* Demonstrations by outside artists are usually open to visitors and these are marked as "Open" events.


All Guild members attending Workshops will be expected to help set-up and/or clean tables that are used and help clean the other hall areas that need to be wiped over at the start and end of each session.

For the time being, the kitchen will not be open, so please bring your own snacks and drinks (this will reduce the preliminary and final cleaning needing to be done).

There is no longer a requirement to wear a mask in the Hall unles you wish to because you are vulnerable. Attendees are requested to have a mask available if possible to wear if conversing with a vulnerable member.

Social distancing should be maintained as far as reasonable.

If you need further information about our events or workshops, please don't hesitate to contact us by sending an email to the Programme Team .

10.00 am** - 2 pm, Broad Town Village Hall
(**9.30 am for volunteers setting up tables etc.)

Two day-time painting workshops are held each month (one on a Friday, another on a Saturday). These take place at the Village Hall in Broad Town (just outside Wootton Bassett) and are currently open to members only at a cost of £3 per person. Note that these are untutored workshops, just bring your own materials and whatever you are working on and paint or draw in the company of other members.

Bring your own refreshments. Face masks are no longer required when entering and moving around the hall. However please have one available for interactions with more vulnerable members if requested.
