This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

This is a workshop for more experienced painters so you’ll be encouraged to bring your own work for discussion and feedback.

I will help you realise technically your own ideas and find inspiration in contemporary art practice. Subject will be up to you and working in a larger format on paper or canvas is welcome.

The workshop will start with a group exercise that’s aimed at limbering up and help you to focus on creative mark making. Some mixed media materials will be suggested for you to experiment with.

Suitable for experienced intermediate and advanced students.


  • Bring a large piece of watercolour paper 250 grm or more - this is for a group exercise on the first day.
  • Surfaces to paint on eg canvas panels, large sheets of watercolour paper and/or

              Un-stretched canvas off the roll. Polyester cotton primed double coat is the best

  •  I’ll have some suggestions to develop more experimental approaches
