Watercolours for beginners



Are you fascinated by watercolours but just don't know where to start? Are you frightened by the blank white paper? Were you given a set as a gift but feel guilty that you've not used them yet?! Join us for a foray into the wonderful world of watercolour, exploring all the different colours, brushes and techniques to give you the starting point you need. Watercolours are a wonderfully expressive medium but can also be very unpredictable - join Field Breaks Art artist in residence, Hazel Money, to learn how to embrace the unknown and let the paints speak for themselves. Starting with an introduction into the colours themselves we will start with some simple exercises and build up a series of reference sheets, before going on to try out our hand at a scene or landscape.

What's included in the price?

Photographic reference and still life objects will be provided along with refreshments. Please bring a packed lunch. A short materials list will be sent out before the workshop. Parking is on site.


5½ hours (10:00am to 3:30pm)

Cancellation policy

Easy - Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
