Studio Arts Carlisle

Studio Arts is a visual arts group who meet once a week during the academic year.
Participants have the opportunity to work with a range of professional artists on a weekly basis, developing their creativity and skills for exhibitions.

The weekly workshops take a multi art form approach; this means that you will learn a range of new visual art skills, including model making, painting, clay work and textiles.

Workshops run from 9:30am – 3:30pm for 36 weeks every year, on Mondays during term time.

Workshops are based at our workshop and studio spaces in the centre of Carlisle:

Prism Arts
Carlisle Business Interaction Centre
4-5 Paternoster Row

  • Learn and develop new skills, supported by professional artists
