Day Workshops



These day classes are not for beginners.


You don't need to be an expert

but you do need 'the basics' under your belt!

(I am happy to teach complete beginners

either at regular classes or private tuition)


For further information, or to book your place, please email me at:


During the late spring and summer, I undertake a limited number of day (10am-4pm) workshops on specific themes. Workshops fill quickly and I usually have a waiting list, so if you are interested in future events please email me. Most workshops take place on a Saturday as this is the most popular day but I try to include some midweek sessions for those unable to make it during a weekend.


'...thanks so much for Saturday, I thoroughly

 enjoyed myself.....It was a real treat

to have a whole day, and the lunch was

delicious, thank you..'

 Saturday 11 May

10am-4pm including lunch and refreshments

St Mary's Church Hall, Walton

'Spring Flowers'

You are welcome to bring your own flowers but I will supply enough for the day. 
You will need: Stretched paper or a block, hot pressed or NOT surface, please bring a small jar or some Oasis for your flowers or they will wilt as the day goes on.
In this class you have a choice of loose and washy, or more detailed/ botanical: it's up to you and I will demonstrate throughout the day and give individual attention.

Saturday 13 July

10am-4pm including lunch and refreshments

Village Hall, Earl Soham

'Still Life'

I am going to bring some interesting objects to start you off but I would like everyone to bring an object (not too large!) to incorporate.  We will then begin by composing the still life(s) together. Always a popular day but with your own objects and nobody knowing exactly what they will be painting, I am looking forward to a fun and interesting day. Stretched paper or a block required.

excellent :) What more can we ask?'


 Saturday 03 August

10am-4pm including lunch and refreshments

Jubilee Hall, Theberton

'Horse(s) in Water'

Horses have been requested as a subject by quite a few students, so here it is!  Horses can often be seen in the sea at nearby Sizewell and at Pakefield. Horses make a lovely subject and adding water will add movement and drama to your painting.  Photographs will be provided but you may, of course, bring your own (photograph, not horse!).  I will be demonstrating how to paint water and key details of the horse.  A fun day lies ahead!  Stretched paper or block needed.



Saturday 17 August

 10am-4pm including lunch and refreshments

Haysel House, Coddenham



A terrific subject for any painter. Gondolas, reflections, Venice......what's not to like? This very atmospheric picture will be challenging but hopefully rewarding. I will demonstrate how to achieve a dramatic sky for this one. Stretched paper or a block needed.
