Embracing the talents of the people of this part of Argyll is important to us and we've teamed up with some great local artists to offer you the chance to learn a new skill over the summer months. Our workshops will be held in the Greenhouse here at Glenbarr, a wonderful airy space where you can listen to the sound of the birds outside, the laughter of others and feel the warmth of the sun while you create your masterpiece. Each workshop will break for lunch and you are free to have something from our award winning cafe (not included) or bring your own packed lunch. Spaces on our workshops are limited, please contact us by telephone or email to book your place.
