NEW BOOKING SYSTEM
There has been a lot of interest in the workshops and weekly classes since restrictions were lifted and I've had many submissions asking for dates for available workshops and/or spaces in weekly classes. As you know, the shed accommodates a maximum of 4 people only so it can be tricky working numbers, dates and availability that suits everyone. From January 2022 there will be no set dates for workshops. Instead, I'll be offering courses/private tuition for individuals or groups up to 4 people that's tailored to individual requests. In other words, if you'd like to arrange a watercolour class, for example, for a group or as an individual then we can set a date between us and organise the content accordingly. To get in touch please use the Contact form on the main menu.
See below for examples of previously run workshops.

The course includes information on paint brands, brushes and surfaces along with an introduction to colour mixing.
Suitable for intermediate level /confident beginners.
This course introduces some well known techniques of 'looking' that will help you to draw and paint the world around you . By the end of the day you will be able to use the skills you have learned to create authentic images drawn from life and you'll have a piece of original artwork to be proud of. This workshop is popular not only with complete beginners but also with those that haven't drawn or painted for a while and would like a reminder and some support on how to get going again.
