Art Room

"It is the creative potential itself in human beings that is the image of God"   Mary Daly.

The art room is an excellent, self contained, well-lit space, housed in former farm buildings, with facilities for ten participants to work at any one time. Materials are set out attractively on shelves for easy accessibility.

The Art Room is for you to:

     - Relax, play and be refreshed

     - Explore your own creativity

     - Expand and deepen your spirituality

     - Meditate and pray

     - Engage with issues you wish to focus on


It is supplied with a variety of materials, paints, pastels, clay & many others. The art room also has a potter's wheel and kiln.
