Painting weekend

Abstract Art workshop, bespoke one day in my studio in Gainsborough


A fantastic weekend spent painting in the medium of your choice.
This is ideal for a birthday party, hen party, anniversary, or just because.
You can choose from watercolours, acrylic paints, or mixed media. You can choose your own theme from landscapes, plants, animals, or abstract.
On the first day, Saturday, we spend time learning about and experimenting with the medium of your choice.

We stop for a light lunch & a glass of wine which is included.

The afternoon is spent experimenting with the medium and planning your final piece. This will be on a large canvas. The session ends with a slice or two of cake and either tea/ coffee or a glass of prosecco.

On Sunday we continue with your final piece.
A light lunch is included on Sunday too.

The workshop is in my beautiful garden studio in the heart of the pretty market town of Gainsborough which has the stunning Old Hall, the River Trent, and beautiful surrounding countryside.

The historic city of Lincoln is only 30 minutes drive away or a short train ride.
Why not make it into a staycation?
We have a lovely Travelodge in the town centre.
If you feel like spoiling yourself you can book into the Hickman Hill Hotel, Cox's Hill, Gainsborough, which is beautiful.

Originally from Liverpool, I have been head of Art in schools in Surrey & Nottinghamshire for over 24 years.

My studio/gallery has been open for 5 years. I run a wide variety of workshops and hold annual open-day art exhibitions from my garden studio/ gallery.

The maximum number is 6 which creates a lovely atmosphere and allows for plenty of 1-1 tuition and social distancing. Previous clients have equated their experiences of a workshop to a spa day.
As it is a full day, please bring a packed lunch.

It is possible to run the workshop on different dates to suit your needs. The minimum booking is for 2, maximum is 6. Please contact me via 'message the tutor' if you have any questions.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
