Allanbank Arts is a vibrant friendly art centre based in the eastern Scottish Borders. Our home is the 18th century former coach house for the Blackadder estate and is a truly picturesque location set in three acres of grounds.

Run by business partners Liz Hardy and Justine Miller, Allanbank Arts offer courses in the visual arts for people of all ages and abilities. We are proud of the quality of our teaching, and the friendliness of our tutors, who are all highly experienced as well as being successful practicing artists. We aim to offer a warm welcome to all and help make art accessible and enjoyable.

We regularly run courses and workshops in drawing, painting, printmaking and mixed media, along with a full range of opportunities for young people.

Liz and Justine also work regularly with partner organisations in innovative and collaborative projects.
