Find your flow with our Painting workshops

Painting is such a relaxing way to record the world around you and the good news is, once you know a few technical tricks, its an absolute breeze to master. We offer a range of watercolour workshops as well as a rare chance to paint on water with our paper marbling workshops!


Jane Davies Watercolour Masterclass

Meet the talented Watercolour Artist Jane Davies and learn all about her energetic and vibrant pieces inspired by the beautiful Surrey Wildlife! You can join Jane throughout the year exploring seasonal subjects and palettes with wet on wet watercolour! All workshops are suitable for absolute beginners and all specialist materials included.


Paper Marbling with Ebru

This season we are inviting you to meet with Ebru for a calming and mindful introduction to the magical art of painting on water. Ebru - also known as cloud-painting for the way that the paint clouds as it spreads across the water - is an ancient art-form originating in Turkey and dating back to as early as the 15th Century. Of course we’ll be adding a contemporary twist to the outcomes we produce, but the rest of the experience will be as authentic as it gets folks!


Botanical Drawing & Painting with Ellie Green

Go with the flow they say – and what better way to do so than to learn how to loosen up your drawing technique and slow down your approach to watercolour painting with a super gentle botanical drawing and painting workshop?

We’'ll work with fine-liners, brush pens and artist quality watercolours to create beautiful blooming studies with a vibrant seasonal palette!
