A CREATIVE ENVIRONMENT FOR STUDYING AND MAKING ART
Bridge House Art
COVID - 19
COVID 19 UPDATE 04/05/2020
We promised to keep you all informed of any decisions we need to make regarding the summer school courses with regard to the government advice on Covid 19.
It is with much regret that we have cancelled the first three courses in June. This is so disappointing for us all. There seems to be no certainty ahead of how to safely proceed as an art school so we felt it was only right to give some clarity to the earliest course students as possible. Everyone on these courses has been notified personally by email and a full refund offered: please bear with us as we process them. It is our hope that we may be able to still run the later courses but again we will follow the government advice and cancel accordingly if needs be. We aim to offer any cancelled courses this year on or as near to the same dates in 2021on a first refusal basis to all who have booked this year. We will get in touch with you about this when the time comes.
Lastly some good news, all our tutors have responded creatively and have written some excellent online content for you to enjoy we look forward to you joining us on a course soon.
Days into Weeks....
So we finished the last day of April and we welcome in May, as days turn into weeks - we are still in lockdown. The future is uncertain as to when we will be able to resume some aspects of normality so we have come up with something for you to participate in which is a weekly task. It can be expanded upon as you like and with the time you feel you can give to it.
Here goes… ready?
HOW TO FIND US
Bridge House Art is situated on Old Moss Road. Travelling from the south, just follow the main road (A835) through Ullapool heading north. Old Moss road joins the A835 on the left hand side just before you cross the road bridge over the Ullapool river. Once you have turned left Bridge House Art is on your right hand side. If arriving from the north, as you arrive into Ullapool down the hill, past the industrial estate on your left, there is a right hand turning just after the bridge over the Ullapool river. Turn right onto Old Moss Road and the studios are on your right.
Ullapool is easy to reach from the south. It is about I hour 15 minutes drive north west of Inverness on the A835. Edinburgh and Glasgow are approximately 5 hours journey by car.
Ullapool has good bus links with Inverness, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Perth and Stirling, chiefly because it is a major ferry port to the Western Isles. The Citylink bus service from Inverness bus station runs in connection with the arrival/departure of the Calmac ferry into Ullapool. Pick up/drop off is at the ferry terminal. Tel Citylink enquiries on: 08705 50 50 50 or check www.citylink.co.uk There is also a summer service from Inverness to Durness that drops off/ picks up from Ullapool. Stagecoach service 61 also connects Ullapool with Inverness.
Ullapool doesn't have a train station and train passengers must disembark at Inverness to complete their journey by bus. Tel Scotrail enquiries on: 0845 7484950 or website
WHERE TO STAY
