Our workshop programme is all about inclusion - we want you to come and get involved with you own creativity.  We strive to bring you a wide selection of events that you will want to experience, to learn from and most importantly to enjoy.  

All our classes and workshops are suitable for beginners unless otherwise stated.  Our mission is to increase your confidence in your own creativity.  All it takes is a willingness to have a go  - we teach you to stop giving yourself such a hard time because doing so means that you learn so much faster.

The Art Retreat is a beautiful studio in a beautiful town in the beautiful county of Suffolk.  We also organise trips out to various galleries and cultural experience, mainly in the Spring/Summer months.

All our creative tutors are artists in their own right and have their own businesses.  We have 15 - 20 artists that we work with regularly and you can meet some of them here on our Meet The Team Page.

The Art Retreat itself is based in Woodbridge, Suffolk but we can come to you too.  The majority of our workshops are flexible in where we deliver and if you have a group of people that you can bring together talk to us about it.

A warm welcome awaits you 

Samantha Barnes & The Art Retreat
