Gloucester Arts and Crafts Group
The first Summer School was held at St. Peter's High School and later Beaufort Community School. Since 2015 we have been at Newent Community School, Gloucestershire. We have charitable status, (Reg Charity No 1069039) and because we keep our overheads low our courses are excellent value for money, although the quality of what we offer is exceptionally high. Course fees covers expert tuition, use of some specialist tools, all meals, drinks and refreshments. Materials can be supplied by the tutor at cost, payable on the day. The organisation is carried out by volunteers, who do it to give others the chance of enjoying arts and crafts. All courses are taught by experienced tutors, artists in their own right. Classes are open to adults.
On average, we offer 25 different courses at Summer School, most but not all, for the full five days. Because we are a non-profit making organisation, we are able to offer courses that are truly excellent value for money, run by experienced tutors who are accomplished artists in their own right.
Although the Summer School is our main event, we do have other activities including two one-day workshops in spring and autumn. These workshops are held at Maidenhill School, Stonehouse, Gloucestershire.
A lot of our students are members of the group, but non-members are equally welcome. Members receive early information about the Group’s activities, two weeks booking priority over non-members by receiving the brochure early , £5 discount for the One Day Workshops, invitation to AGM– with visiting speaker and a newsletter.
