Do you like vintage china? pattern? painting? Want a lovely day out with a scrummy home-cooked lunch?

Then this could be just for you –  the lovely Bev and Nigel of Old Bank Studios have booked me to teach a Pattern on Pattern Teacups watercolour (gouache) class on Saturday 5th March.

All abilities are welcome. We will work from a still-life set up and approach the painting in stages.

Or you can go at your own pace and follow your own creative leading. Either way Bev will still cook a lovely lunch for us to eat together 😛 Booking details are here.

Then on Sunday 6th March I’m teaching All Things Bright and Beautiful (Mixed Media) again at Old Bank Studios so why not make a weekend of it? It is the Mothers Day weekend – treat yourself or come together and treat your mum!

This is a fun way of working: layering up collaged papers and paint layers, starting out loose and experimentally and then adding increasing levels of detail. I’ll be bringing bird and butterfly reference material but you can make your canvas of any image you want.

If you want to make a weekend of it I’m sure Bev will happily suggest local accommodation – email her here or phone her on 01255 242930. You can book onto the course here.

Harwich is a bit of a drive but don’t let that put you off! (all the more reason to come for the weekend…) Bev and Nigel are two of the loveliest, most genuine people I’ve met and Old Bank Studios is a lovely setting to learn and create in. Oh and did I mention the delicious lunches…

 On Saturday 18th April 2015 I am excited to be teaching a workshop at Old Bank Studios in the lovely old town of Harwich, Essex.

The workshop day is titled All Things Bright and Beautiful.

We will be having a lot of fun creating a layer of abstract collage onto which we can paint shapes more suggestive of foliage or grass and then some birds or other wildlife to create a richly patterned, beautiful little canvas to take home.

It will be a very chilled day as this is a really fun way to work allowing for happy occurrences with the collage base and don’t worry we will have plenty of reference material of flowers and birds so everyone, whatever ability, can enjoy themselves and create a piece that they’re proud of.
