Discover the Joy of Creativity This Winter with Leeds Art Workshops

By Victoria Haynes

Winter is upon us, which means it’s the ideal time to cosy up indoors with our art classes in Leeds! After all, what better way to spend cold afternoons than bundled up in snuggly jumpers with our loved ones, getting creative? As the days get shorter and weather chillier, indoor activities become more inviting, so if you’ve been looking for ways to brighten up grey weekends then you’ve come to the right place – from festive workshops in linocut Christmas cards to cosy couples painting classes for a wintery date night, get ready to immerse yourself in a warm haven of creativity! 

Paint and sip classes will help you revel in relaxation

Imagine sipping on a glass of your favourite tipple (or a festive mulled wine!) while creating a masterpiece on canvas; that's what our paint and sip workshops offer! These aren’t just art classes, but fun social experiences that combine painting with relaxation. The informal environment encourages everyone to let their hair down and dive into their creative side, so why not invite your friends over for an evening of fun-filled painting?

If you’ve always admired the beauty of nature but didn't quite know how to capture it effectively through a lens, our landscape photography workshops are perfect for you!

Our linocut Christmas card workshops, like those from Make Your Own, are perfect for those who want to surprise their loved ones with handmade cards, plus the process is simple, relaxing, and incredibly rewarding when you see your designs come to life. It’s also an excellent way of breaking away from the digital world, slowing down and embracing the charm of traditional printmaking.
