Art Workshops and Classes
Have you ever wanted to try out painting or crafting, but never actually gone further than thinking about it? Well, if that is you, read on!
Our workshops are held in our beautiful new gallery in our converted church. The paintings we will create have been carefully chosen to be completely do-able even by complete beginners.
Everyone can come along and have a great time, and no-one will judge you on your work
You might just be an artistic genius and create a masterpiece though....
Art classes are usually 2 or 3 hours long including a coffee break and cost between £30 and £50pp. We even have one that comes with a cream tea...
Online Painting Classes
Our online watercolour class and course have just been released into the world! Just like our face-to-face workshops we aim our online classes at complete beginners who want to enjoy learning in simple 'non-arty' terms that they will understand.
Our aim is for you to learn AND enjoy yourself, whilst you create beautiful paintings with us. We have a one off class and a monthly course for you too!
One to One Painting Sessions
One to one painting sessions are the perfect Birthday or Christmas Present for anyone who loves painting and drawing. You can book anything from 2 hours upwards, (you can buy 6 hours and have 3 sessions perhaps).
Just get in touch and we can arrange a Gift Certificate and we can arrange a time and date once the gift has been received!
Our beautiful art space can be hired for your workshop or event, just get in touch to discuss. We have lots of outside space, coffee and tea facilities and room inside for approximately 12-14 attendees.
Jill Aspin owns and runs the gallery which is actually part of her home. Jill is a professional artist, producing varied collections of beautiful oil paintings, acrylic paintings and watercolour paintings too. She loves to paint landscapes, cows and bees, horses, the beach, dancers and all sorts of animals.
Jill's Original Art and Limited Edition Prints are available from the Online Gallery shop
Or you can organise a commission painted specially for you
Here's what some of our customers think of us....
"What a wonderful place to learn, excellent environment, teacher and so relaxed, the time flies! Plus Piper the dog is always ready to great you. Have done a couple of classes now and would highly recommend them, will be doing more and already booked next ones. A great way to relax and clear you mind, thank you Jill x"
“I had a great time. I was a complete beginner but it was the perfect class for me. Fabulous teacher and such an informative lesson too”
“I attended a beginners watercolour class this weekend and had a fantastic experience. I really enjoyed learning something new in a relaxed atmosphere with a helpful and patient teacher. The two hours flew past and I feel like I've learnt enough to have a go myself at home now. Would highly recommend and will be looking to attend future classes. Thank you Jill!”
“Great venue, great host and teacher. Such an enjoyable afternoon. Will be back”
