- Specialist Interest Art Breaks -
We run a series of enjoyable and informative Art workshops along with craft and textile courses, hosted by experienced professional tutors and based in relaxing locations in Derbyshire and around the UK.
We are thrilled to be able to offer our physical workshops again, with new dates added or re-arranged. All Covid-19 regulations will be adhered to and we will only run the workshops when we are entirely satisfied that it is safe to do so. In the event of an unforseen cancellation, all deposits and payments will be offered a full no-quibble refund, or can be transferred to any other course.
The safety of our tutors and those attending the classes is our number one priority, so we will only be running the classes once completely satisfied that they are safe to do so. Do please check back here for regular updates.
We look forward to meeting you as soon as possible! In the meantime why not book one of our on-line workshops which are designed to motivate your creative side while we await better times!
Professionally tutored art workshops in drawing, botanical illustration, landscape and mixed media painting, alongside workshops in pastels, textiles, printing, jewellery making, stained glass and needlefelting.
This year we have expanded our arts programme to include craft and textile workshops along with introducing some new tutors and venues. We hope you will find our programme interesting and find a workshop that appeals to you. Our aim is to provide professional quality workshops, with individual guidance and tuition. We have chosen venues that offer good facilities and have a relaxed feel to add to your experience. Please see the testimonials from previous participants, many of whom are returning in 2021.
“As always the tutor was excellent and I thoroughly enjoyed the course”
“Thank you for organising such a well run course, tutor is excellent, it has been really enjoyable”
“As always, tutor excellent, thoroughly enjoyed the course”
“A thoroughly enjoyable way to join likeminded people of all ages and abilities to create your own individual masterpiece. The tutors are brilliant, willing to share their knowledge and experience, and the bikkies help the creative juices to flow. The setting at Barlow is beautiful and inspiring. It’s a great way to spend a day. The only downside is trying to limit yourself from enrolling on all the courses – they are all inviting.”
