My improvers workshops are for people who've used pastels before but are looking to develop their skills. You might be someone who's just started out on your pastel journey or you might be a more established artist who is keen to pick up some new tips and tricks from another pastellist.
You will be part of a group of no more than 4 people. We'll spend the day completing a painting together from photographs. Everything you need for the workshop is provided, including professional standard artist's materials, lunch and refreshments. However, you are welcome to bring your own pastels, paper or materials if you have them.
Glasfryn Hall is the home, studio and gallery of your host, Dave Roberts, a professional pastel artist who specialises in painting the landscapes of North Wales.
Within the grounds of Glasfryn Hall is Oriel Glasfryn Gallery, showcasing the work of 35 Welsh artists and makers.
The workshop is suitable for ages 12+.
Glasfryn Hall is just 4 minutes off the A55 North Wales Expressway and is less than an hour from Liverpool and Manchester by car. 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 but feel free to bring your own pastels if you wish
