I’m delighted to offer some more outdoor workshops and private tuition this year!

‘A Useful Sketch Book’

Day-long outdoor workshop

Summer 2024 venues are currently being booked and will be announced before April 2024. Get in touch to put your name on the waiting list for summer 2024 workshops, or arrange a bespoke session for you and a friend or two before then.

What’s the difference between a pretty sketch book and a useful one? I will help you to improve your confidence working outside, loosen up, make visual decisions, and use your own materials creatively to record and annotate in a way that will advance your own methods of working.

Note that while you’ll be working outside, this is not a plein air painting workshop. You will be working in sketch books on multiple short studies throughout the day.

All summer workshops are usually held on weekdays, Tuesdays, 11am–4pm, but the exact day/time will be announced when venues are booked.

£60 per person (use you own materials, or buy a sketch kit from me for an additional £30)

One-to-one / small group bespoke sessions

Do you want to gain confidence and experiment, with some more bespoke guidance in my studio in Holtby, or working outside?

You might want to come on your own or come with a friend/small group of friends.

I can:

  • Help you to explore your own style and ideas in a relaxed studio environment or outdoors.
  • Encourage experimentation with mediums – play, explore and develop.
  • Help you to connect/re-connect with your own creativity and skills.
  • Help you to overcome nervousness about making mistakes – there are no such things!
  • Give guidance on your development of observational skills, sketching, working from studies etc.

Please contact me to discuss your own requirements.

Prices start at £40/person for a two-hour bespoke session. Please contact me to discuss your requirements and I will provide a quote.
