Learn all about pastels and how to paint with them in the fabulous setting of Glasfryn Hall, a fine country house on the edge of the Clwydian hills, North Wales.
This one-day workshop is perfect if you have no, or limited, experience of using pastels. They are a really accessible art medium so it doesn't matter if you haven't done any painting before or are someone who already enjoys working in other media but would like to give pastels a try. Whatever your level, you will learn new tips and tricks and by the end of the day you will have completed your own masterpiece to take home with you!
The workshop will take place in a fun and relaxing atmosphere with just a small group of participants (maximum of 6). Glasfryn Hall is the home, gallery and studio of your host, Dave Roberts, a professional pastel artist who specialises in painting the landscapes of North Wales. Consequently, the focus of the workshop will also be on landscape painting.
The workshop is suitable for ages 12+.
Glasfryn Hall is just 2 minutes off the A55 North Wales Expressway. Chester is 30 minutes drive, Liverpool 45 minutes and Manchester 1 hour. Flint train station (west coast mainline) is 20 minutes away.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
All equipment and materials (including pastels of the highest quality will be provided), as will lunch and a constant supply of light refreshments. You don't need to bring anything!
