Workshops

We try to offer a broad range of workshops in our programme, so there is something for everyone.  Workshops that we have held in the past include salsa, ballroom and Zumba classes if you want to get active; painting, creative writing, crafts including jewellery making , mosaics, felting, or floral art to name but a few if you prefer something a little bit more relaxing.  We want to keep the kids interested too so we do things like music, dance, animation, puppetry and of course our Summer School for all budding ballerinas.

All of our workshops are held in the Burnavon unless otherwise indicated. Contact the Arts and Culture Department on 028 8676 9949 opt 4 to apply for any of these workshops or download the appropriate form and return to the Burnavon with your details.
