Drumming is very relaxing and meditative and a great way to let off steam, relax and have a good time!

Refreshments are included – teas, water and coffee although the licenced bar will also be open.

A range of different types of drums and other percussion instruments are available to use or bring your own! Only £4 per session!

All welcome! Not suitable for under 10’s.

Putting the Art into Arts Centre

When you think of the Arts people generally think of music, theatre and films but of course there are also the creative arts of painting, sculpture, print-making, ceramics and crafts.

Art has a special place at the Oak Room with opportunities for people to exhibit their work in exhibitions or art and craft fairs held regularly. Helping artists and crafters to sell their work is one objective of the Oak Room, especially as there is a lack of exhibition space in the town and local area.

Meanwhile, in the downstairs Studio (also known as the Secret Garden Room) a whole array of Art Classes happen on a very regular basis. This is the place in Tiverton to dabble with watercolours, get messy with oil paints, persist with pastels, draw the human form, make a print or join in with a craft class. More and more artists are holding classes here. It is gradually becoming an Art School!

Recently the studio room has been upgraded for art workshops and there are plenty of tables, a washing up area, plenty of natural light from the large picture windows, daylight bulb spotlights for those dull winter days and a wonderful cosy feel. The added attraction is the garden terrace overlooking the River Exe which is a great art space in the summer months.

Life Class

The studio attracts artists running workshops such as Belinda Reynell who teaches oil painting and Lizzie Mee teaching print-making, Ken Maharajah teaching life drawing, as well as regular workshops and classes run by the owner Sue Searle, an accomplished artist who specialises in watercolours and crafts. Art is well and truly an integral part of the activities at the Oak Room.

The Oak Room Arts Centre, right in the heart of Tiverton, is also a place for people to come and enjoy a wide range of live music, eclectic and intimate theatre, and our speciality – Silent Movies – with the pipe organ being played live! The next one is in March. These more high profile events are usually well supported and popular and are the signature of the goings-on at the Oak Room.

The Oak Room is also proving popular as a party venue and we have hosted anything from a Baby Shower, works Christmas do’s and a gathering of belly dancers, to a 6 year old’s party, several wild 30th birthdays and a 70th and 80th too. The eclectic surroundings, great acoustics and the facilities of the bar, café and kitchen prep areas as well as the garden terrace make it an attractive and unique venue. Wedding bookings are also starting to trickle in. To walk up the aisle to the pipe organ playing the Wedding March, and the grand feel of the historic building, makes it feel like a real occasion!

See our website www.oakroomtiverton.com/art-craft-classes for more details of upcoming classes.
