Maxtoke Priory nr Fillongley Warwickshire 27th June 2018 £48  10 till 4pm  


The owner of Priory farm Penny Tyacke very kindly allowed me to run an outdoor workshop at her home. 

The ruins of the priory date from 1331 and are built in a rich red sandstone, the farm building has wonderful weathered timbers, herringbone brickwork and aged leaded glass to add to this are wonderful gardens. This was a super day and  hopefully will be repeated in 2019

Polesworth Abbey Friday 27th July 2018



Greenmoor Road Allotments Saturday 1st August 2018 10am till 4pm


I have hired the lovely new Pavillion building for us to use for any indoor work, drinks, lunch etc, there are new ladies and gents toilets on site.

After the success of the may work shop I am running this again and at this time of year I thought the harvest would be wonderfully exiting. Weather permitting we will be sketching on site and then returning to the Pavillion to paint, Saturday is busy for the gardeners and this will add an interesting dimension to the work. I will be doing small bite  sized demos throughout the day. 


Entrance next to no 95  Greenmoor road, Nuneaton, CV10 7EN
