Art House South Brent is ‘an arts and crafts space for making, mending and meeting in South Brent’ with two fantastic spacious, airy, light-filled studios at the south end of the Old School Community Centre for classes, workshops, exhibitions and events. Art House offers classes and sessions for people of all ages, abilities and experience, to get inspired and learn new skills, make a mess, have fun with new friends (and clear up afterwards!).
