9.30am - 3pm.

In 2021, as a result of the pandemic, I developed a series of workshops under the title of 'Nurture'. The workshops are based on keeping Nature diaries (or sketchbooks), working mainly from observation, looking at what is happening and growing in each season.  They are a chance to develop your creativity while taking care of your mental health, to immerse yourself in your artwork and escape the pressures of everyday life.

'Nurture' workshops are held three times a year: 

Spring 'New beginnings'; Summer 'In bloom'; and, Autumn 'Decay and regeneration'.

I'm delighted to say that we will be back in Marden Flower Farm, run by lovely Ellie, for a whole day workshop.  We had a three hour workshop in Autumn 2021 but the ladies who took part wanted a longer session, so here it is!  Spaces are already being booked and you can buy a place as a gift ( I can send a voucher in one of my artist cards).


See for more photos of this beautiful space. 

There is a well lit and heated yurt as well as a polytunnel (if we need to stay inside) with tables and chairs for comfort and lots of biscuits and hot drinks to keep your energy flowing.  Bring a packed lunch.


New workshops at Pett Level Village Hall, near Rye.

I will be teaching five workshops in Pett Level Village Hall in 2022:  three 'Nurture' workshops and two mixed media workshops.

The village hall is a bright, airy space with free parking and good facilities.  There is a space to work outside with a view across meadows leading to trees.

Each workshop will last three hours (from 9.30-12.30) and cost £50.  The price includes refreshments and some materials.  In the Nurture workshops you will be provided with a vase of flowers and a sketchbook that are yours to take home at the end of the workshop.

Papers and glue are provided in the mixed media workshops.  (You are asked to bring a board to work on, scissors and a brush for glue.)
