Please join us for the Creative Walks, which are running for a limited time only throughout March, and are led by experienced artist Simon Jardine. The Mortimer walk includes short stops to paint, draw or photograph areas of interest. Walks end with a creative class inspired by the walk, along with tea and coffee.
They are open to everyone - experience of photography, painting and drawing is not necessary. Free art equipment is provided. Walks are informal, relaxed and friendly. These walks are suitable for adults, but not families, or children.
