 Dartington Village Hall 



  T.A.S.  Programme 2024 

Dartington Village Hall


Anna Durnand, a local artist, will be doing a critique on Tuesday 5th March.

Anna was trained at the Slade and has done some stunning work in oils;

she would like us to bring examples of our work along.


Lynda Kettle, a renowned West Country artist has kindly agreed to run this workshop for us on

Saturday the 30th of March at our usual venue Dartington Village Hall, running from 10:00 till 4:00.

Linda, based in East Devon, holds workshops and demonstrations for many West Country Groups,

and her full range of work can be seen on her website:


Our usual workshop format will be modified for the day, allowing those who wish only to attend the demonstration to do so

along with those who choose to do the complete day workshop. Therefore 10:00 to 11:30 for the demonstration and coffee,

with members participating in the full workshop continuing for the rest of the day. We hope that this trial format will suit all our members.    Demonstration cost £5, and the demonstration and full day workshop costing £30.
