Find your inner artist and become creative

Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate help you fulfil your creative potential. Learn to paint landscapes, craft pottery, and cook up a storm. For a few hours or on a residential course, in Thanet you can free the creative in you.

Margate's Turner Contemporary doesn't just deliver a blockbuster gallery, this dynamic visual arts organisation also aims to inspire - here family and adult workshops span film-making, drawing and sculpture. And it's hard to resist Pick ‘n’ Paint a Pot in Cliftonville, where you can create your very own, hand-crafted, seaside souvenir. 

The multiple-day mosaic courses run by Martin Cheek in Broadstairs see you working alongside an internationally-renowned artist to construct stunning works. 

In Ramsgate, Meltdowns uses environmental science and technology to help artists develop their creative practice. Ramsgate Festival in the summer overflows with theatre, dance and workshops. 

You can learn culinary creativity too. As well as multi-week courses, Kent Adult Education runs a range of one-day tutorials in Thanet, covering everything from baking and patisserie to cupcake sugarcraft. There's also a wealth of other one-day courses you could build a break around - choices range from sculpture and floristry to photography and pottery.
