Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A fantastic and inspirational day tutored by an incredibly talented artist, Amanda ,who couldn't have been more encouraging and supportive of our attempts to draw various animals. I am certain that everybody came away full of even greater enthusiasm for painting and drawing animals and with a greater awareness of the 'tips and tricks' that would be most helpful to produce better end results. As always, the studio was warm and welcoming with plentiful supplies of tea , coffee and a most welcome lunch. I can't recommend the day highly enough .Hopefully, there will be more similar days in the future.

I have been attending classes at Art4you for around 4 years now. It is a warm friendly, family run business where you can try many different media. Suitable for novice and accomplished artist alike.
It is definitely the highlight of my week and would recommend to anyone wishing to give their creative side an outlet.

We attended a ceramics Saturday workshop with Lorna. It was such a fantastic day, incredibly absorbing, informative and a lot of time for being creative and making things. I’d highly recommend art4you - Claudia and the team were so welcoming and it was a very enjoyable day!

Thank you very much for the nice feedback - much appreciated. It was lovely seeing all the beautiful work being created - from a pile of clay to inspiring creations. First firing is almost completed - getting closer to finishing your pieces. I will be in touch soon with collection dates. Thanks again for joining the workshop. All the best for now and hope to see you again. Claudia

I was on the Watercolour, Pen & Ink course, on Saturday, with the most amazing teacher "Francis".
From the moment you enter the art studio you are made to feel at ease and by Claudia, Francis and the other ladies taking part.
Francis demonstrated several different ways to use pen, ink and watercolours and then gave guidance and encouragement as we tried them out.
The day just flew by and I left with the knowledge and inspiration to continue with these mediums at home.
I have only been on one other course at Art4You, which was the "Introduction to Acrylics," but this will not be my last as they are well worth the money.
If you are thinking about one of the courses - go for it as you won't regret it.

Relaxed, friendly atmosphere, very welcoming hosts and a really enjoyable experience. This was exactly what I wanted from an introduction to acrylics. We were drawing, sketching and painting within the first half hour and our tutor, Lorna was on hand throughout the day with some excellent advice and encouragement.
Highly recommended.

This was a great day. A small group of lovely people sharing and dabbling in techniques under the friendly down to earth and accessible tutelage of Lorna. It has been a while since doing any pen/brush to paper so I hope this gets me into the zone again. The artists are friendly and helpful and the studio is a light pleasurable space to be in. If you are thinking of attending a class I highly recommend you give it a go. You will feel inspired and full of possibilities.
