Service Description

A relaxing comprehensive workshop exploring the basic techniques of pure watercolour. No previous experience necessary, beginners and those wanting to refresh their techniques are welcome. We start the day with a brief introduction to materials with samples, practice paper and paint guides provided. I will demonstrate washes, layering, and explain transparency and opacity through small projects. There will be plenty of opportunity for you to practice the washes and techniques and use them in a finished painting. The beginners starter pack to take home includes :handouts, practice paper, colour guide and projects covering the aspects of materials, tone, layering, washes and opacity covered in the workshop. You are welcome to arrive from 9.45am for tea and coffee. Demonstrations will start at 10am and we finish at 4pm. Please bring your own lunch. I provide tea, coffee and cake. The workshop will be held in the large light and airy Wilkinson room at St John's Church, Hills Road, Cambridge. There is free parking at the rear of the Church which is accessible from Blinco Grove.

It's been a brilliant learning experience. Your explanations have been crystal clear and your guidance extremely helpful and encouraging." Maggie "A very constructive days painting in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, thoroughly recommend it" Stephen "Brilliant day with masses of info to absorb" Ann "Pre-workshop communication is excellent and Denise has it all sorted so that you can borrow or buy what you need on the day. When you arrive you find you have your own table with various things laid out ready to go, and I wonder if the calm, low-key structure throughout the day is in fact what backs you up when "going into the unknown" as in spreading surprisingly watery paint on very wet paper. Superb workshops in every way." from Jane Frances. Beginners workshop. For further reviews see the review tab on the main menu.
