Until 7 February 2023 Let’s Explore and Watercolour

Black and white, with a touch of colour. The world can be black and white, or perhaps there are different shades of grey, and tonal complexity. Drama, intimacy and mystery will inspire our artists.

Come and enjoy the gentle effects that can be achieved using pigments mixed with water.

Featured Artist Nada O’Loughlin Yonge. Featured Potter Michele Darmanin
