About the Course

Join us for a creative relaxing evening, as we create a paint ready to hang on your wall in just over two hours. Complementary glass of Prosecco on arrival.

Local artist Chrissie Richards invites you to join her as we paint colourful paintings in a loose intuitive way. You will be guided step by step, or feel free to do your own thing, having fun is what it's all about. Enjoy a glass of bubbles, great conversation with friends old and new in a relaxing creative environment. No experience is needed. At the end of the evening you get to take home a work of art that you have created to love and admire for years to come.

"I've really enjoyed the workshops. I think the exercises we've done have really helped me to feel freer in art. Loved doing the collage and painting on each other's paintings. Very relaxing creative workshops."

- Lindsay
