Connect and Create

Our Connect and Create classes are a wonderful opportunity to develop creativity and benefit from being part of an artistic, relaxed and friendly group.  Accessible art classes for beginners and intermediates.

Meraki Guildhall Studio

Our Connect and Create workshops will be held in the inspiring first-floor Meraki studio at the Guildhall Centre in Exeter. This space couldn’t be more perfect for creative workshops; bright, airy and benefiting from stunning views out over St Pancras’ Church to the spires of Exeter Cathedral. These sessions are varied and will help people develop in a range of areas, from painting and ceramics to beautiful crafts. No previous experience is needed. Enjoy views out over the hustle and bustle of the city and get creating!

Upcoming Connect and Create Classes

All workshop materials are provided (and all classes can be purchased or subsidised using a Meraki Connect and Create Gift Voucher.)
