Enjoy a day of creativity and fun, by retreating to the foot of the East Sussex Downs, for a one day workshop experience led by Laura.

Courses can be tailored for complete beginners and also for intermediate artists wishing to explore new approaches.

You will be supported to make a unique mixed-media artwork to take home at the end of the day, by being playful and exploring different mixed-media techniques.

The day covers various aspects of mixed-media techniques:

- Working with different mediums, including paint, gesso and gels
- Painting backgrounds and layers using different techniques
- Playing with papers, fabric, photographs and collage
- Using found and repurposed materials
- Stamping and stencilling
- Adding texture

I like to use recycled and found materials in my workshops, and to add layers of meaning in the artwork by using materials which have meaning to you personally. If you have some paper or material that you wish to incorporate into your work that is meaningful to you, then please feel free to bring this along with you & we can advise if it is suitable to use (examples include a photocopy of a special photograph, a map, a letter, a small piece of lace, and so on).

What's included in the price?

The day includes all materials and tools (including a small canvas for those who wish to use one). You may wish to bring an apron to protect your clothes You may wish to bring other found materials as stated above.

Tea & coffee is included in the cost.

Price is per person (based on a minimum of 2 people - workshop days for individuals are £150 per person).

Date can be arranged at time of booking or by using a gift certificate.

Children must be accompanied by a supervising paying adult.

I had such fun - and that's what art is all about, right? We experimented and investigated different textures and paints. We stencilled, brushed, paletted, glued and admired. I learned so much and Laura has given me confidence in my art. I absolutely love the canvas I produced at the end of the day (I usual despise what I have created!) Totally recommended.


What a lovely relaxing and informative course with lovely company I had today. I learnt about paints,texture, techniques, and all bits & bobs which can be used to make patterns .I learnt how to incorporate this into my style of artwork. Laura was very encouraging with great imagination. A lovely tutor . I recommend this course highly.


I really enjoyed this class, I feel that I was taught everything that I need to know to be able to do a mixed media picture at home - which I'm definitely going to do. Laura was very organised, relaxed and encouraging and she had a wealth of materials to choose from. If you want to explore mixed media that I would definitely recommend this class.


Laura is a very encouraging and supportive tutor. She discussed her work ethos which I found very interesting before we moved on to try out various techniques. She had many different materials and mediums to use and encouraged us to try them out to see what they were like. She was very organised in her approach to the day, ensuring that there was plenty of time to both try stuff out and finish the day with a completed piece of work. Lunch was delicious!


I went on this course not really knowing what to expect, but after a really fun day I came away feeling excited by the prospect of making more mixed media pieces. I found Laura to be a really supportive and encouraging workshop leader, which was lovely especially when I really wasn't sure how the artwork was going to turn out. We learned new techniques and had the chance to experiment with different types of textures and paints before starting on our main project, which made me feel more confident when I was creating my artwork. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and would recommend it to anyone looking to experiment with a new craft with an inspiring and knowledgeable tutor.


I thoroughly enjoyed Laura's mixed media workshop. Laura is such a wonderful teacher, patient and supportive, facilitating you to explore and experiment and guiding you to produce a piece of work to be proud of. Thank you Laura for a relaxing and inspiring day. I highly recommend this workshop.
