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

 Maxtoke Priory nr Fillongley Warwickshire


I have been offered a wonderful 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.


I plan to run the day by doing small demos of various areas keeping the work straight forward and avoiding overly complicated compositions. This venue is so interesting that you can easily feel overwhelmed by what it has to offer e.g. beautiful red sandstone, interesting arch ways, doorways, herbaceous borders, etc, etc.


10.00 Meet & Greet


 Demo on site about composition and how to choose what you want to paint


12.30 ish gather back at the house for lunch for about 30 mins

3.20 finalise paintings for get together, chat and appreciation

4.00 finish







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.

Please remember folks that when you are painting outside

burn you (even when it's not out) and so it is best to dress
