Studio Rental: If you are an experienced artist you may just want to enjoy the facilities of the Art Centre as a place to paint or sculpt independently without the help of a tutor. You are welcome to come and stay at the art-center and use the sculpture studio and terrace or the painting studios. You can come, if there is space, during a course when there will be half board options
available or you can self-cater if there are no courses running.
