We continue with previous year’s free walking tours. These have proved very popular by combining visits to artists’ studios with enroute insights into the landscape and history, which inspire many of our artists. This year’s outdoor programme of popular walks and sketching tours is expanded to include a phone film-making walk and a cycle tour. Instruction is given on sketching and filming walks, which are therefore suitable for both beginners and the experienced.
