Our artists and practitioners have resumed offering classes and workshops with modified formats to ensure safety during the pandemic. Some are using our larger spaces to offer physically-distanced instruction, others have moved to virtual learning and other on-line activities.
Learn a new skill, refresh your perspective, and imagine the world more creatively! The studio artists of the Alton Mill offer classes & workshops in a variety of mediums and themes, for beginners to advanced artists of all ages. Sign up for a weekly class, a day-long or a multi-day workshop.
Subject to health guidelines, the Mill also hosts custom corporate team-building or family projects, available to be booked on a one-off basis, subject to a minimum number of participants.
Usually, the following classes are offered, plus occasional master classes by guests:

The Bridge Workshop on the lower level of the mill is available for rent on a one-off or regular weekly basis. This is an ideal opportunity for outside artists to have a regular place to work or offer their own classes at the mill without the commitment of a full-time studio. Equipped with tables, chairs, mini-easels and individual storage, this is your bridge to becoming part of the Alton Mill creative community.
To organize a group activity involving multiple disciplines, to book the Bridge Workshop or another space for your own master class, please contact Margi Taylor at Creative Events Management (519) 940-0935 or send Margi an email .
