About the Course

Long weekend residential art holiday at historic Flatford Mill.

Colour and texture are everywhere in the varied planting of Natalie Finch's garden in East Bergholt and the borders at Flatford Mill. There is a relaxed but focused atmosphere on this course - you can wander with a sketchbook or settle down to paint, perhaps looking along a path or through an archway. Demonstrations will be given in pencil and pen drawing, watercolour, gouache and combinations of these techniques, with individual help always available. A little experience of working outside is useful. Fees are inclusive of entry and refreshments in the garden.

Jennifer Andrews is a freelance painter and designer. Her work is decorative rather than 'botanical', although she draws and paints with a certain accuracy giving particular attention to the habits of plants.

Bring a friend! If you are attending a course at Flatford Mill at the sole occupancy price, we are offering a special rate for a friend or partner not enrolled on the course to also stay at £50 per night for dinner, bed and breakfast. Please get in touch directly to book this offer.

Flatford Mill lies at the heart of the Dedham Vale, on the banks of the River Stour near the Suffolk-Essex border. The Centre buildings, particularly the Mill and Willy Lott’s House, are instantly recognisable since they feature in many paintings by John Constable. The rich mosaic of lowland landscapes, wildlife habitats and places of historic interest are all reflected in our extensive programme of courses.

The Centre is located between Colchester and Ipswich and is about 10 miles from each, approximately 2 miles from the A12.
