Our wonderful programme of workshops has been disrupted for a while but we are going to run workshops via Zoom during this coming spring (see below).

Zoom Instructions for Participants

19 June 2021 – Mary Noble – Booking Form
Pressure & Release with Pointed Pens – Online

From here onwards we are hoping that we’ll be allowed to use the hall at Highnam, and meet face-to-face, but if restrictions are put in place again, the tutors will deliver the workshops online.

Workshops are usually 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on the 3rd Saturday in the month in the Gambier Parry Hall at the Highnam Community Centre. Any difference to these times will be indicated alongside the event.

18 September 2021 – Sheila Murray

25 September 2021 – Mini Bookfest
(restored from last year’s AGM) with Stroud Artists Books bringing along some of their book creations while  GLA members should bring 1 or 2 books each which must have been bound and written or decorated by themselves.  We will be hiring the big hall to display all the books in as well as the Old School for refreshments since it has two rooms for seating and the grass area between with benches.  There should therefore be plenty of safe space in which to enjoy the afternoon.
