Festive candlelit watercolour/acrylic workshop


with mulled wine and mince pies to help!

Tuesday 4th December

Time: 2.30pm - 6.00pm

Fee: £40

Suitable for all levels but some experience in watercolour or acrylics would be advisable.


Join Rebecca for an atmospheric, informal session, painting by candlelight.


A still life will be set up in the space for you to work from: lit by candles that enliven the shadows as the darkness approaches.


You will start work in the afternoon working from observation making drawings and paintings on paper.  As you work in the near dark unexpected colours and marks overlap to create new, loose and atmospheric pieces. 


Your finished work will be fresh and spontaneous to capture the magic of the moment.

Please bring watercolours and/or acrylics and brushes if you have them.  Paper will be provided (unless you would prefer to bring your own).

If you would like to book this workshop or have any questions,
