Drop-in sessions

Non-members are welcome to sample our Drop in sessions alongside our regular members. These sessions cost between £10 to £20 per session, depending on the length of the session. Where space is limited you are advised to phone the number listed against the session to ensure you don’t make a wasted journey.

Update: Change in venue

Due to closure of the Windsor Street centre closing the art sessions that were previously held there are moving to new accommodation. Unless otherwise stated the new sessions will be moving to the Riverside Arts Centre in Sunbury:

Riverside Arts Centre
59 Thames Street,

Note, the studio is across a courtyard via an alleyway to the right of the main entrance in a separate building with a green door with a sign “Riverside Craft Centre”. The studio is on the first floor to the left of the staircase. Toilets are on the ground floor to the right of the entrance.


In addition Saturday sessions are now held on Platt’s Eyot in Sunbury.

Print Workshop 2.00pm-4.00pm
Print workshops are held on the first Friday of the Month starting on Friday 5th October. There will be room for three people at each session on a first come, first served basis, and it will be necessary to book in advance, and for participants to be paid-up members of Chertsey Artists for insurance purposes.

You can print monoprints, or previously prepared drypoints and etching plates. The inks used will be water based. The session fee will be £10.

If you have not printed before, Martin will give you a tutorial in how to use the press, but basically the sessions will not be tutored although technical help will be given.

To book your place, please contact Martin at martinbhenley@hotmail.com. He will then give you directions to his house in Teddington. Free parking is available in the road.
