When’s the next class?

Chorlton Alternative Art Class meets every Wednesday from 7.30 – 9.30pm at the Edge Theatre & Arts Centre on Manchester Road in Chorlton – get directions here.

We have started limited classes, with 20 attendees, each Wednesday evening.

To Book a Class

The cost for this session is £10, in advance by Paypal, (Friends, not a service). To


Ensure you state the date of the class you wish to attend.

In the past attendees just turned up on the night, now because of restrictions, people have to Pre Book. There is a Maximum of 20 attendees. As people have ‘Booked’ but not confirmed we are insisting on payment in advance, operating on a first come first served basis. The class fills very quickly, advise booking a week ahead.

If you have paid after the maximum has been reached, you are entitled to a full refund, or a priority booking for the following week. If you cannot attend you will be given a full refund if you provide 24hours notice.

The class is limited to 20 attendees approx. (we used to have more than 50)

The Edge is confident Life Drawing is one of the safest activities in the current climate.

Life Drawing is one of the most civilised activities I know of, in all the years I have run a class, I have never encountered any difficulty, not even had to ask anybody to be quiet!

Obviously there are some changes.

Bring your own materials.

We can provide paper and other drawing materials, but there is always the risk of cross contamination, from me to you.

We need to respect everybody else’s personal space.

The model in particular, should have a minimum of 2 meters at all times.

But you can still talk to other class members, and it will still be as convivial as we can make it.

If you have any questions or concerns, or just want to check if a place is available just get in touch, by Email at     J.p.lynch@ntlworld.com

If you cannot make it on the night let me know asap, places are limited. A full refund with 24hours notice.

Take Care

    1. Sorry about the very late response, but unless I answer straight away, I lose messages.
      I’m afraid we only do Adult classes, and I’m not aware of any children’s arts classes, which is a real shame.
      Sorry I can’t be more helpful.
