Summer School

Summer is in full bloom in this glorious warm weather we're all experiencing. And the studio is a hive of creativity with workshops, classes and courses all taking place in 2018's Summer School. 

This August, acclaimed acrylic artist Brenda Hurley, will be leading a two day course on Mixed Media Landscapes.  Come and venture into the exciting world of discovering pattern and depth in a landscape, using collage, crayons, inks and acrylic paint - a truly sensory, creative experience.

Another artist who loves and celebrates colour in their work is Tom Shepherd. Specialising in painting animals, Tom uses vibrant and exciting colours in his acrylic paintings to show off the best of an animals fur or feathers. Be sure to look at Tom's Exotic Wildlife course to see some of his stunning paintings. 

Last but by no means least, for those wannabe Sewing Bee contestants amongst you, we have  just added some new textiles courses with experienced tutor, Sylvia Downton.  Sylvia has been sewing for as long as she can remember and her enthusiasm for all things fabric and thread is so infectious, we just knew she was the right person to lead our two new courses, Demystifying Dressmaking and Getting to know your Sewing Machine.  For those of you who can already sew and fancy a project, why not come along to her two day Easy Sew Kimono workshop instead?
