Brecon take pART is an art workshop providing the opportunity for everyone to enjoy exploring arts and craft skills.
The Workshop is well stocked with equipment and materials providing facilities for metal-working, pottery, textile crafts, painting, printing and stone carving.
If you?re over 16 we?d like to welcome you to one of our subsidised Workers? Educational Association Courses in jewellery making, pottery and stone carving. The Courses run for 30 weeks of the year and are led by professional artists and craftspeople who will help you to develop your skills, learn a craft, and make work you can be proud of.
If you?re under 16 we run art classes for you as well, every Wednesday during school term-time, from 5p.m. to 7p.m. You can do pottery, painting, printing, airbrushing and textile crafts. Parents are welcome too.
6 times, or more, a year we run drop-in adults and childrens workshops where you can, we hope, enjoy exploring the possibilities of different crafts.
We provide art and craft workshops for adults and children at the Infantry Battle School at Dering Lines in Brecon.
During the summer school holidays we run workshops in pottery, mask making and felting at The National Park Mountain Centre at Libanus.
We can also provide reasonably priced workshops in mask-making, pottery and textiles for community groups and organisations in Brecknockshire.
If you become a member of the Workshop and want to do your own thing we have Open Workshop Days where technical help is available if you need advice. When there are no Courses, running individual members can use the Workshop and its facilities, on any day of the week, including weekends.
We sell screen printed 3D animal and fantasy masks to raise money for the Workshop, and if they want Workshop members can sell their work on-line.
We welcome volunteers to help us at the community-based workshops we run.
