Excellent tutor and the course is suitable for all levels. It is relaxed and fun but also full of information. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:So pleased you enjoyed it! I loved the work everyone did. We were lucky with some nice wether to set off the beautiful surroundings too.
Had a lovely day today, learnt a lot and now need to make sure I put it in to practise.
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Delighted you enjoyed today and hope you put plenty of miles on your brush!
Really enjoyed this course. Perfect for a complete beginner like me. Beautiful setting. It's two days after the course and I did a bit of painting this morning!
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Ooh gold star for putting your learning into practise, so soon after the course. Well done and keep going 😁. So pleased you enjoyed it!
Lovely day. Excellent tutor who assessed our needs beautifully. Lovely setting.
I had been given the course as a 60th birthday present- two years ago. I think it will become the most memorable present
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Hi Sue, what a lovely review. Thank you! I hope this will be the present which goes on giving for years!
Spent a lovely day with Liz. She is an excellent teacher and whilst encouraging also encouraged us to get out of our comfort zone. As a result I learnt a great deal and found the day a wonderful time to experiment with loads of personal tuition. I shall certainly try to come in another course In The future. Thank you Liz!
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Hi Aline and thank you for a lovely review. So pleased you could join me on both the pen and wash day and the sketching day. And thank you for the lovely review. Lizx

Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Thank you so much Aline. You were a pleasure to have on the course - full of ideas and enthusiasm. I learnt lots from you too, so can't wait to try out my new mini palette! Hope you are happy with your tree when you've finished it. Looking forward to seeing you again. Lx
Having experienced a great number of craft/painting courses over the years, Liz Chaderton is in a class of her own. Her knowledge, experience, preparation and presentation using an intelligent development of different skills/techniques, is exceptional. I have gained so much from her cheerful tutoring sessions.
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Jill - you are always a joy to have in a class and it has been a privilege to see your art develop and blossom. I love your enthusiasm and enjoyment of learning. So pleased you could join me. See you soon!
I really enjoyed my day. I learnt a lot of new techniques and inspired tondo more pen and wash. I liked trying the different pens and thought the idea of doing small sample drawings was very useful. I will book again
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Hi Sylvia, so glad you enjoyed the day and look forward to seeing your lovely bridge. Thank you for the review and I hope to see you again soon. Lizx
It was a great day yesterday!
Liz put her ideas across to the class really clearly and in a way that was easy to understand.
It was so helpful to see Liz demonstrate some techniques too, and we all had fun trying these techniques for ourselves.
I felt that I learnt a lot and now have a clearer idea of how watercolour paint works.
I’m looking forward to attending more of Liz’s classes in the future.
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Thanks so much Sue - really glad you enjoyed it and found it useful.
Liz presented a course which was interesting, enjoyable and very thoroughly and thoughtfully prepared. The day's content was sensibly and progressively structured and we were provided with sketching equipment to use that had been carefully prepared into individua packs prior to the day. There was a great atmosphere and we received both group and individual tuition with much encouragement. Welcome light refreshments were constantly available.
We were supposed to be sketching en plein air, but the weather conditions (rain and wind) were atrocious and the even the standby marquee that had been organised for us to use because of the forecast rain, could not be used because the wind was too severe, so we moved on to Plan 'C' and Liz, with the cooperation of the Farmhouse owners, was able to to negotiate our use of part of the premises so the course could continue. There was ample subject matter for sketching within sight so we lost nothing from this thoughtful and welcome arrangement.
I had a great day and learned some new techniques which I fully intent to put into use.
This was a lovely course run by an efficient, friendly and knowledgeable teacher.
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Thank you for such a lovely review Graham. I am delighted that plan C worked and we did not have to progress to D (me crying in the corner).... I hope we can meet again under sunnier skies.
Really love the way Liz teaches, she is great at getting the concepts and ideas across. The course is very well set out and makes great sense in putting together an animal portrait. I have since purchased further courses from Liz and look forward to learning more from her. I don't know what to say except i am a beginner yet have found the confidence in my skills to take part in all the lessons. thanks Liz
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Thank you Linda. That is so good to hear. I’m delighted the course has given you confidence and skills. That’s just what I hold for! Lizx
Liz's workshop was excellent!
In respect of the current situation with Covid every precaution and adherence to protocols were completely explained and adhered to throughout and I felt safe.
Liz had prepared well with the tutorials, practical sessions, with everything we needed at our workstations.
She is a gifted, knowledgeable, generous and enthusiastic tutor, with the ability to explain, inspire and support across a mixed ability class.
A lovely setting and a very welcoming and relaxed atmosphere conducive to learning even though we worked hard.
I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would love to attend another of Liz’s workshops should an opportunity arise.
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Hi Sue, what a lovely review! Thank you for taking the time to do it. Really pleased you enjoyed the course and hope to welcome you back to another one soon.
Not only is Liz a great artist, she is also a great tutor - and the two do not always go together! Liz has a relaxed and friendly manner and delivers a well structured course. Her critiques are fair, constructive and encouraging. I went hoping to learn how to 'let go' and loosen up a bit - and certainly achieved my objective, and learnt good techniques, as well as having fun. The Studio is ideal - and in a fabulous setting. I'll be back for more!
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Hi Karon, thank you for your lovely review. I smiled to myself as I did the intro and told you what we would be covering. Unfortunately as the ending is more loose I couldn't 'tell em what I told em'! So glad you enjoyed it and really hope to see you back soon. It is a gorgeous venue, isn't it??
Liz is a wonderful teacher: engaging, enthusiastic and encouraging. The course covered some basic and more advanced techniques with lots of time to practice and experiment. I would thoroughly recommend Liz’s courses to any one who loves watercolour
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Hi Donna, thank you for such a lovely review. I thought your otter was excellent and meant to take a photo, along with the silhouettes - but didn't. If you share on social media tag me and I with 'love' it! I am so glad you have booked on more courses. See you soon!
I always enjoy being on the courses that Liz runs. She takes a lot of trouble to make them instructional and fun. Today we worked on painting animals in water colour and Liz was so helpful. She breaks the day into 4 sessions and demonstrates clearly what each section is teaching. She allows plenty of time for students to ask questions and we all had a great day.
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Thank you so much Carole for a lovely review. I appreciate it and I am glad you enjoyed the day. See you soon!
Having never used watercolours before and being very sporadic in my artistic endeavours I was a little apprehensive going into the class. I needn't have been, as Liz is an excellent teacher and swiftly put me (and the other students) at ease.
Her instructions were clear and concise with a nice dash of humour. Liz demonstrated on a TV screen the techniques before giving us an opportunity to practise what we have just been over. I found the progression from the basic techniques, through tones, washes and eventually using a mask to get white into an image well judged. Throughout the day Liz would wander around and help us refine what we were doing, and in places where perhaps we hadn't been successful suggested options for what to do to improve the picture, or give an explanation as to why it happened and how to avoid pitfalls in the future.
The venue was perfect with plenty of space, a gorgeous setting and very welcoming. I'm looking forwards to experimenting more in this medium.
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Hi Stephen - thank you for such a lovely review! I am delighted you enjoyed it and am well impressed with the koala and fish you and your family have already painted. Be less sporadic and you will make huge progress, I promise! Lizx
I really enjoyed the day. Liz is a fabulous tutor who I've met before and didn't fail to instruct and make sure I understood what I was doing!
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:So glad you enjoyed it! Hope to see you back at Micklems soon!
I thoroughly enjoyed this course and learnt so much. The set up worked very well, the explanations and demonstrations were clear and concise and the TV screen was very helpful to see the demonstrations in detail. Good range of practical tasks, well paced and nice resources to use. The venue was beautiful and hosts very welcoming. I feel much more confident in my skills now!
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Hi Joanne, thank you for a lovely review. So glad you enjoyed it. Please keep painting!
Positive comments but constructive criticism and good suggestions.
A great experience with someone who knows her stuff.
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Thank you David for the great review! And, it has earned me my gold award, so double thanks. I am glad you enjoyed the weekend.
A great weekend. Such a lovely venue. I’m a bit of a novice at watercolours but Liz eased us into it with a progression of exercises and paintings. I’m thrilled with the results and have learnt so much. Brilliant teacher. I just wish I could show you what I’ve achieved!!
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Thanks for such a lovely review Gill! I really want to see your finished landscape with it’s perfect piece of watercolour😀!
