This course will be structured around demonstrations, set work and students’ own projects. A variety of techniques and subjects will be covered. A slightly longer session (2½ hours) allows students more time to complete paintings and also allows the tutor to offer advice as the work nears completion. The course is designed to encourage and support a personal and experimental approach to the medium and subject matter.


If you wish to book a place on one or more course(s), please email, telephone or write to us to check there is a space available. Payment details will be given after which we shall hold your place for 3 days to allow you time to pay either by BACS or by cheque. For further details please see Booking.

These will include demonstrations by tutor; individual practice by student; instruction on a group and individual basis; question and answer, etc. If circumstances dictate where we are unable to meet face-to-face, a detailed handout will be emailed or posted to you, so you can work on it at home.

NB. Please wear face covering, and bring your own refreshments (including drink and mug) and hand sanitiser.
