Event description

Description

Celebrate summer and join artist Helen Rhodes for a relaxed and enjoyable day at The Refectory Table. The table will be laden with flowers and the garden will be in full bloom for you to create a posy as inspiration for a wonderful decorative painting.

Many of Helen's paintings feature favourite objects and flowers, combining rich colours, textures and patterns with naïve compositions. Helen will share the secrets behind her techniques as she takes you through the process of working from life and using the flowers you have chosen to design and create your own mixed media painting.

Venue & What’s Included

The workshop includes:

  • Artist’s ‘show and tell’ using Helen's own artworks.
  • Flowers, all materials and tools, a worksheet explaining techniques.
  • You’ll be well looked after with refreshments all day, a home cooked two-course lunch (we cater to all dietary needs) and home baked cake before the final session.
  • Leave with a goodie bag full of treats, and your posy of flowers!

This workshop is for up to 7 people so you get lots of time with Helen throughout the day, as well as sharing a lovely sociable lunch. Suitable for all abilities.

It's run from 10am - 4.00pm by The Refectory Table at a friendly and spacious house with a beautiful garden (that opens to the public for the National Gardens Scheme) in Loughborough, Leicestershire. Full details and directions will be sent to you upon booking.
