Workshops & Studio Days

What’s Included and How to Book

Small, Botanical Watercolour Painting Workshops and Courses where up to four students can enjoy a day, (or two) of painting here at the ‘Squirrel HQ’ studio in Hampshire. Classes are kept small, friendly and relaxed so there is lots of one-to-one time during the day, (with fresh tea, coffee and home made cake to keep us going). Demonstrations, tip sheets, refreshments, (although please bring your own lunch) and a variety of subjects are included. Paper can be bought at the studio, and the paints I use are also available for you to try as a ‘rented palette’ on the day.

Workshops run from 10.00 – 3.00
