Monthly ongoing watercolour course for beginners

Pulling out technique

About the Course

This is an ongoing course for beginners.
This is aimed at students who have never painted in watercolour before, for those who have previously attended a beginners watercolour workshop with me, or for those who have painted before but need to overcome some common painting hurdles.

If you are new to painting, Gilly will offer you separate individual tuition for the 1st lesson, as a foundation and preparation to join a class which started in Sept 2019, so that you will not be thrown in at the deep end with those who have been in my classes before, this will give you the building blocks to be streamlined into a beginner group that will not leave you behind.

It is the aim of these workshops to enable the student to paint competent representational watercolours, and learn in a way which is enjoyable and absorbing.

These monthly workshops are ideal for those with busy lives who cannot commit to weekly classes, and want longer than the few hours weekly classes normally give them to consolidate what they are learning in a progressive way.

Gilly also offers email support so students can practice between workshops, and a residential option for those travelling from further afield.

It is intended that these workshops continue indefinitely and carry the student from beginner to improver and beyond.

The price advertised is per workshop, and can be paid at the time of the workshop, however it must be stressed that these workshops are sequential and progressive, meaning that you will be unable to successfully complete a class if the previous one has been missed, especially the first one.

If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

Tea coffee, biscuits, but students are asked to bring their own packed lunch.
Residential students will have an evening meal with wine, bed and breakfast.
