Workshops & Classes

(Please note, we do ask that all participants in these groups become members of the Centre for just £7.50 per year)


Hand built ceramics with Sylvie Gagne

These workshop sessions are very popular and we now have four sessions a wek to cope with the demand: Wednesday morning or evenings and Thursday mornings or evenings.

We hand build hollow ceramic sculptures and pots for kiln firing. Beginers will be shown how to make pinch pots and to build with coils and slabs. Those with some experience can join in at any level. We work with good quality hand building crank type clay which is also available to purchase for working at home.

This is an-ongoing class.

Fees for the class are £6 per session (£5 for Lowestoft Arts Centre and Concessions) plus a firing charge of £1.50 per kilo of fired pots, (more for raku or expensive clays).

The lower age limit is 12 yrs old. Under-15s have to be accompanied by an adult student.



We are planning to start a tutored painting group at the gallery in the New Year; the tutor will be Jan Lacey.

It is hoped to start on the 15th Jan. 2018. Details have yet to be confirmed but will probably be as follows:

The group will meet on Monday mornings from 9.30 until 12.00. Places will be limited but a second group could be held on Monday afternoon if there is demand. Beginners and improvers are welcome. The cost will be £5.00 per session.

There is no definite medium in mind but we expect to start with watercolour and gouache.

If you are interested please contact the gallery and leave your contact details.

If you are a beginner and need to know what to bring tell us and we will let you know.
