#var:page_name# cover

Widely known for the painted bollards in The Square, The Colour Factory studios consists of seven professional working artists. Alongside doing their own artwork they offer a full programme of adult classes in painting, jewellery and silversmithing. The classes are small and friendly, the beach garden workshop provides a lovely relaxed oasis in which to get creative.
Based in the old park keepers house opposite River Park leisure Centre, the artist’s work is for sale in their charming gallery. The artwork ranges from figurative and abstract painting to handcrafted silver and statement piece jewellery.

The artist’s will be bringing their vibrant, colourful and inspiring creativity to City Space this spring exhibiting stunning and original works of art that are definitely “not on the high street”. Come and enjoy free demonstrations and talks by the artists and see what’s on offer.
The exhibition at The Discovery Centre runs from Tuesday 3rd April to Sunday 6th May.
