Please check back soon for news on dates and venues for 2018, I'm updating these at present date

 Maxtoke Priory nr Fillongley Warwickshire


It was wonderful to have been offered an opportunity to be able to run a full day workshop at Maxtoke Priory. Penny Tyacke has made her home and garden available for the outdoor work and her tack room if we need to work indoors.

This was extremely succuessful as the weather was good and we worked on two subjects.

In the morning we warmed up by painting a leaded glass window set between weathered wooden beams and herring bone brick work.

For the afternoon session we drew the ruins of the priory focusing on drawing the arches correctly and mixing the correct greens for the time of year.




This days workshop is ideal for anyone wishing to improve their painting skills or who

would just like to enjoy a day painting

"al fresco" with other like minded people

in your chosen medium.

You will be required to bring all your own painting equipment  for the day.
