I'm Kate Plackett, artist, teacher and founder of The Art Parlour. For more than a decade The Art Parlour (TAP) has been offering art lessons and workshops in and around the beautiful North Cotswolds village of Ilmington. The workshops now take place online as well as in person, so students are able to enjoy a group lesson without leaving the comfort of their home. Whether you are a complete beginner, a rusty returner or a more experienced artist looking to try something new, you'll find a friendly and supportive group at The Art Parlour. 

TAP has changed a lot over recent years in response to Covid, and continues to change as things settle down. If you're interested in joining an art class, or if you'd like support with your own art project, please contact me for info and availability. 

To give you an idea of what we do at TAP, here are just a few of the wide range of workshop topics we've covered in online and in-person classes. Expect lots of learning, lots of creative challenge, and lots of fun. Enjoy!
