Painting Workshops


Come and spend some time developing your painting skills in a relaxing, supportive environment. Workshops are open to all and being small groups only, are individually tailored to ability. All workshops are run by myself, I've taught art for over 25 years as well as creating my own work, and take place in my studio or another local venue and in the surrounding beautiful Yorkshire Dales.

A day spent drawing and painting in the studio and outside in the landscape.

You will have the opportunity to use Wallace Seymour ancient drawing materials (stones and crushed earth pigment) to begin your drawing session and loosen you up to look for the different layers in the landscape, moving on to planning and developing small oil and cold wax paintings on paper. Hopefully some of the day will be spent outdoors where you are more able to capture the atmosphere, but that is weather dependent!

You will be shown different application techniques and tools, building up layers of textures and the use of cold wax medium, coloured glazes and paints to create effects in your work.

Horton in Ribblesdale is on the Settle-Carlisle line so possible by public transport. Workshops are family friendly (age 14 upwards) and venues I use have wheelchair access. Please state if mobility assistance may be needed so that drawing venues can be modified.













A light lunch (sandwiches and cake) and unlimited tea and coffee and biscuits are provided throughout the day.... creativity needs fuel!
