Spring Flower Watercolour Painting Workshop - no experience necessary
Thu 6 April 2017, 10:30 – 14:00 BST
A delightful Spring-themed workshop using watercolour and mixed media in a spontaneous and intuitive style.
This workshop is sure to be informative, nurturing and full of joy! I’ll be sharing some of my techniques and tips, all in the tranquil surroundings of Grassfield Hall. Ideal for those who have already attended some of my workshops but equally great if you haven’t.
I am deeply passionate about creating a relaxed and informal space for individuals to feel fully at ease whilst exploring their creativity in a nurturing and supportive environment. I encourage women to experiment and try new techniques but to also listen to their own muse. I want you to feel replenished, rejuvenated and excited about the future possibilities of where your creative journey may take you. Please know that all skills levels are welcomed.
- indulge with tasty food and perhaps some cake, whilst you relax and delve deep into your surroundings and creativity.
- free tea and coffee (water) with refills throughout.
- a lovely way to spend a day in the lovely Pateley Bridge, the Nidderdale Way, Fountains Abbey, the heart of Nidderdale and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Perhaps you could stay overnight at Grassfield Hall, enjoy one of our many local walks, or just use this time as an opportunity to relax and enjoy the fresh air.
- a great way to share time with other women who enjoy similar interests.

'I now know colours better and how to create a piece of art better. The workshop was very helpful.'
'It was all very lovely. Good mix of learning and creating. Venue was great, seating arrangement nice, food wonderful.'
'Really enjoyed working with paints, learning different techniques. I hadn't done art since school but Jane was happy to cater for my inexperience. I found it a really relaxing and enjoyable treat in beautiful surroundings with lovely food and company too'.
'Jane created a very comfortable, friendly and informal space in which to explore my creativity. I don't consider myself at all 'arty' or particularly visually aware but I felt encouraged and inspired to have a go and play with a rich variety of watercolour materials. Also very nice to meet and chat with other participants. A very enjoyable experience.'
