The Taster Course
is designed to allow you to try a medium before you embark on a full course, or simply to try your hand at painting or sketching when you have no previous experience.

The Refresher/Surgery Course aims to help those of you who have a problem or a dilemma which would be resolved with some friendly professional guidance. It will also help painters who have had a break from the brushes.

Course Numbers: all are limited to 2/3 guests which will allow Michael to offer personal advice. Day courses begin about 9.30 and end about 3.30.

Half-day courses begin at 9.30 and end at 12.30.
