Art on a Boat

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Two day workshop aboard a classic 1940’s boat!

Lunch and Refreshments included a unique experience not to be missed!

“I loved every moment of the Art on a Boat workshop – from the warm welcome, the great food, the stunning scenery and the amazing opportunity to spend some time learning new techniques with two very talented artists who shared their ideas and working practices with us. I came away full of ideas and can’t wait to come on another one.”  Emma (one of our workshop fans)
 

The next ‘art on a boat’ weekend workshops with Kirsten Jones and Priscilla Jones are:

Dates to be arranged….
