About the Course

Four day watercolour art holiday run by the Field Studies Council - suitable for all levels.

Taking inspiration from the hedgerows around Flatford Mill, Siân Dudley will encourage you to explore the glorious colours and textures of autumn. Using mainly watercolour paints you will also be encouraged to investigate other water-based media and experimental techniques to produce colourful images that give back something of the energy of summer.

Siân Dudley is a professional artist, qualified teacher and much in-demand as a popular demonstrator. She has over 20 years' experience in teaching art at all levels. She approaches each person's needs at a highly individual level and is perfectly happy working with beginners as well as more experienced painters.

Bring a friend! If you are attending a course at Flatford Mill at the sole occupancy price, we are offering a special rate for a friend or partner not enrolled on the course to also stay at £50 per night for dinner, bed and breakfast. Please get in touch directly to book this offer.

Flatford Mill lies at the heart of the Dedham Vale, on the banks of the River Stour near the Suffolk-Essex border. The Centre buildings, particularly the Mill and Willy Lott’s House, are instantly recognisable since they feature in many paintings by John Constable. The rich mosaic of lowland landscapes, wildlife habitats and places of historic interest are all reflected in our extensive programme of courses.

The Centre is located between Colchester and Ipswich and is about 10 miles from each, approximately 2 miles from the A12.
