We were there when it was pouring with rain and was quite empty, but it was unusual and very friendly people, helpful and chatty. Can do courses there but we didn't have time but they looked interesting.

The centre is a collection of quirky buildings in a rocky garden setting, showcasing artists and providing courses and classes for learning. Not much happening on the day we went but their website looks interesting. Also some stunning pieces of artwork to look at and buy.
