November Classes

It is getting more and more wintery by the day, possibly by the hour. Halloween, Guy Fawkes and Christmas Fayres are at full throttle.  It must be  time to think about indoor pleasures unless you are a determined Labrador.

There are a number of art classes to tempt you to something new in November, all held at Wherwell Priory Studio.

From Charcoal into Oil Painting

An introduction to oil painting

17th, 24th November and 1st, 8th December

9.30-1.00 each day


17th November could be used as a taster day for £35

This course will look at the basic steps into oil painting, using charcoal drawing as an introduction to tonal work and mark making – not as frightening as it sounds.

This is a good course to do if you have never picked up a hog hair paintbrush, or if you need a reminder about how to approach it.

I will provide most materials so you don’t have to spend a fortune before you know whether you like using oils.

Shipping Forecast – There are warnings of gales in Rockall, Malin, Hebrides and Bailey

Painting the Squall, the Storm and Poor Visibility

18th and 19th November

9.30 – 4.00 each day.

£140/2 days

The Shipping Forecast is a well known friend to many, and a lifeline to some. The poetic language and rhythms are companions to the insomniac and early riser alike.  On this course you will endeavour to capture something of the broadcast, whether you find it alarming, stormy, frightening or calming.

Think of this as interpreting poetry from a slightly foreign, but recognisable, language, or, music in a visual form.

There is no right, or wrong, answer to your interpretation, no correct materials, 2D or 3D. Don’t be alarmed by this apparently open approach – you will be guided along the way, and helped if you need it.

Please contact me if you are interested, want to know more, or are alarmed but interested –

An Evening of Life Drawing

First Tuesday of each month



Life drawing with a mixture of short and long poses. This is directed so suitable for beginners, and for the more experienced.

Please contact me if you are interested so I know how many easels to put out.
