We are very excited to announce that Field Breaks Art resident artist, Hazel Money, has recently opened her own painting and printmaking studio. Situated on the edge of the Derbyshire countryside in Clay Cross, the studio which specialises in painting and printmaking workshops for small groups.
Take lessons in painting with oils, acrylics or watercolours
Unpick the mystery of oil pastels;
Or explore the wonderful world of graphite to develop your drawing skills.
"I spent many years at college and university, learning through patient observation, trial and error, and studying the work of others. Now I've gained half a lifetime of knowledge, I'm just passionate about passing it on to others." says Hazel. "The advantage of using my own studio means I can spend more time sharing knowledge rather than travelling about. A short class length promotes better concentration too!"
Hazel will give full demonstration and help you to achieve good results or answer any questions you may have. You will be able to look first-hand at original artworks to see where each technique is used in reality.
The classes are all limited to just four people, this not only gives more time for individual tuition but allows us to some space to distance. Fresh air will circulate throughout the workshop and you will have your own work table. Please bring your face mask with you for close demonstrations, and ensure you have received all available doses of the vaccine before travelling. We also strongly recommend you take a Covid test before the workshop, thank you. Please note access to the toilet is up stairs.
