Our weekend workshop will run over the May Bank holiday (arriving afternoon/evening of Friday 3rd May), it will be held at the beautiful 17th century Manor House Hartington Hall in the Peak District. We’ll have the use of the studio throughout the weekend, but we’ll work outside as much as we can, so fingers crossed for some good weather. We’ll sketch and paint around Hartington Hall, in the amazing surrounding countryside, or in the village just down the road. We’ll meet after breakfast each day, at about ten o’clock, and there’ll be a demonstration of various sketching and, or, watercolour techniques, which will give you the opportunity to learn something new and have plenty of time to practice, I’ll help during the day with anything that needs further explanation, or with techniques that you’d like to know more about. we’ll finish about four o’clock, giving you a chance to go for a walk, or have a social drink etc before getting ready for dinner.
