About the Course

This one day workshop is suitable for painters of all abilities. Whether you are a beginner or a more experienced painter unhappy with the way your pictures are turning out, this workshop will offer fresh ideas and renew your enthusiasm for this most elusive of mediums. During this workshop Andrew will paint a demonstration watercolour and will provide guidance on an individual basis according to your experience and style. Once Andrew has seen the group paint he will be in a better position to address the problems (if any!) that students have encountered. He will then do another demonstration to end the day, with the aim of addressing these difficulties.

Old Bank Studios offers a wide range of art, craft and textile courses and work-shops. Based in a glorious Edwardian banking hall, our fully equipped studios provide ideal spaces where students can work in a relaxed, ambient atmosphere. Located in the heart of Old Harwich, we are just a few yards from the Electric Palace Cinema.

Harwich Town Railway Station is less than a five minute walk away, with hourly trains to Manningtree, where there are mainline connections to Colchester, Chelmsford, London, Ipswich and Norwich. If you are coming by car, there is normally plenty of on road parking, otherwise there is a public car park a one minute walk away. It is always possible to drop off right at our front doors.
