Fancy learning watercolours?

If you are following this blog from far away, sorry in advance as this is very local to me here in my bit of the UK.

I plan to start a regular watercolour class on a Thursday afternoon.  I have run workshops with art groups across Berks, Oxon and Bucks and teach regularly at JoeDaisy studios in Maple Durham. The group will be held in the Shiplake Church Rooms (opposite The Plowden Arms pub), Thursday from 1.30  – 4.30. If you don’t know the hall, it is on the main Henley/Reading road with a good car park, so has easy access from Henley, Twyford, Sonning, Reading etc.

Having a weekly class will be fantastic for building up skills, exploring new techniques, developing topics – as well as having a relaxed and sociable time. It will operate during term time (ie with a break for half term and school holidays). Each session will have a theme, which will be scheduled in advance to give people time to think about it and gather any reference material they might need. I plan to start the session with a half-hour or so demonstration, tips, and discussion of things to consider and then leave you plenty of time to work on a painting (with support and suggestions). At the end there will be time to look at each other’s work and see what went well, before the grand tidy up. Of course there will be a break for tea and coffee! Everyone can work at their own pace, so each session will be suitable for beginners and those with plenty of experience.

I understand that you might not want to commit for a full term, so I am asking people to commit to a month in advance. Each session will be £12 if paid in advance, or £14 if on an adhoc basis (subject to spaces being available – priority is to those who book ahead). I need a minimum of 10 people to ensure the class is sustainable, however the hall is spacious so we can accommodate more. Should I be inundated, then it will be first come first served and I will set up a waiting list.

The dates are (break for half term and for the new vicar to be inducted):

September (£48): 1 Sept, 8 Sept, 22 Sept, 29 Sept

October (£36): 6 Oct, 13 Oct, 20 Oct

November (£48)r: 3 Nov, 10 Nov, 17 Nov, 24 Nov

December (£36): 1 Dec, 8 Dec, 15 Dec

Please email me by 10 August at the latest to confirm your place (I need name, email and contact details please). I will then send out the schedule for the term and confirm all details. If you have any questions, drop me an email (liz@chaplease caderton.com). Please also feel free to send this on to any friends who may be interested.

I do hope you can join us – it should be a lot of fun!

 

Best wishes
