Calendar 2021

Activities August to December 2021

General information.

New members please note that you pay the leader at the first session of an activity, or if you make a single attendance, you are not required to pay in advance. 

Please try to bring the correct money in cash or cheques made out to ‘Bexhill Artists’ Workspace’ to any activity where payment is involved.

The reason we make payment for a whole term cheaper than for paying for each one, is that single visit payments mean more work for the leaders of the activities and for the Treasurer.

Please take newspaper or a plastic sheet to protect tables and your own cleansing materials to all practical indoor sessions. No litter may be left at any venue but must be taken home.

A note from Steve:  Session 2 will be far less messy than session 1. On this occasion, please bring Staedtler or Unipin type drawing pens, ideally black. These are easily available at Priceless, SBS or even WH Smith. Width doesn’t matter though I’d suggest 0.5 to 1.0. The narrow Sharpies would also do. Any drawing paper is suitable for this.
