Beginners Watercolours & Cream Tea Experience

Watercolour iris..artist's studio in Gainsborough Lincolnshire


The watercolour & Cream Tea experience is an ongoing course. You choose the day and time and I will try to accommodate.
Spend a creative afternoon or morning learning watercolour skills in a beautiful and inspirational garden Gallery/ studio in the market town of Gainsborough.
The session is relaxed and perfect for well-being and good mental health.
We spend the first part of the session learning watercolour techniques step at a time. You move on to working on your own individual pieces.
The session finishes with a beautifully laid table filled with homemade scones, clotted cream, strawberry jam, tea or freshly made coffee.
The maximum number for a session is five, the minimum is two. There is plenty of 1-1 help on hand. I have been teaching Art for over 24 years and running adult workshops for a number of years.

My garden studio was recently expanded and is now also an Art gallery of my artwork.

A lovely environment to get together with friends... whether it's to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, hen do, or, just because. The date and times are at your convenience.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

All materials, tea/coffee/homemade scone, jam & cream ( afternoon or morning tea).

I really enjoyed being able to take the time to chill and try watercolours. Amina was so encouraging and I loved losing myself in the different techniques.

The mindful background music, freshly baked scones and real coffee made it perfect ‘me time’ Thank you for a wonderful afternoon Sx

Response from A.S.K Art & design ( Studio & Gallery):

Thanks for the lovely message Sue. It was a wonderful session and so great to meet a fellow globe trotter. I hope to see you soon x

We booked a workshop with Amina as a gift for our soon-to-be sister-in-law, and it turned out to be a wonderfully zen and fun alternative to the traditional 'hen do' :)
Amina was so welcoming and put us all at ease; her studio is spacious and really well equipped. Everything was prepared when we arrived and we all sipped a hot drink whilst she talked us through what we'd be doing and what to expect. None of us had much recent art experience but we were all pleasantly surprised at what we were able to produce with the different techniques. All this topped off with delicious homemade scones, generous helpings of jam and clotted cream, plus freshly pressed coffee and a pot of tea - it was a wonderful afternoon enjoyed greatly by all. Thank you, Amina!

Response from A.S.K Art & design ( Studio & Gallery):

Hi Ruth,
It was a lovely afternoon and I felt privileged to host such a special occasion.
The work you all completed was beautiful, there was a lot of talent in that studio. I'm so pleased you enjoyed the home made scones with Cornish clotted cream and strawberry jam.
I look forward to seeing photos of the wedding.

What a perfect way to spend a rainy Saturday morning. Amina was friendly helpful and we enjoyed painting in her peaceful studio. All topped off with some lovely scones and a cuddle with Murphy the dog. Fab.

Response from A.S.K Art & design ( Studio & Gallery):

Kelly and Amelia were an absolute pleasure to meet and spend time with. They completed some lovely watercolour paintings and enjoyed the cream tea and a cuddle with Murphy. I hope to see them again soon.
