Sometimes we lose sight of the sense of excitement, surprise, inquisitiveness, and PLEASURE that brought you to drawing and painting in the first place.

2017 Art Courses

There are workshops at the Studio in Wherwell, Rum’s Eg in Romsey and at the prizewinning Riverside Yurt Cafe. 

Workshops at the Riverside Yurt, on the river Test

Riverside Lifestyle began when Clare and her family first opened the doors to Riverside Cottage, their spacious Hampshire hideaway that’s since been featured among The Sunday Times’ 25 Great British Holiday Rentals. They  also have the Riverside Yurt, open for coffee, teas and cakes – Wednesday to Saturday. (occasionally closed to private functions). This is the Southern Tourist Board’s Gold winner for Best Teashop.

They offer exercise classes such as Yoga, Boot Camp and Pilates, sell local produce, and hold art workshops.

Have a look at their website for more information and directions:
