Islandmagee Art Trail
The Islandmagee Art Trail is a fantastic experience which is an art and craft trail around the peninsula of Islandmagee. Maps are available from the local shops to guide you round the various craft makers and artisan workers who show their wares and techniques during the bank holiday weekend in August. Enjoy the wonderful views and countryside in Islandmagee, stop at the Rinkha for an Ice Cream or take in the Gobbins Cliff Top Tour. Gobbins Studio will be open for the weekend so be sure to call in and peruse the original art, prints and cards on view.
Watercolour Art Experience
The art experience class at Gobbins Studio i suitable for anyone wishing to have some fun with watercolour paints in a unique and relaxing environment.
You do not need any experience – that’s half the fun!
Class numbers are limited to 4, so everyone receives individual attention.
You will get time to experiement with the paints, learn some do’s and dont’s when working with watercolours and leave with your very own mounted piece of artwork.
During the coffee break, you will meet my many studio companions and soak up the atmosphere of this unique location, while hearing a little about the folklore surrounding the local area.
