7th July -Summer Posies
Celebrate the start of summer with me at a table full of fresh flowers and access to the garden to create your own posy as inspiration for a wonderful decorative painting.

18th November- A Winter's Tale
I love creating scenes which tell a tale within my images. This is a popular cosy workshop where I will show you how to create a winter themed artwork telling your own Winter's Tale, how to use gold and silver to best effect and how to design simple borders to embellish your artwork.

I am delighted to be running these workshops at The Refectory Table in Loughborough again following the success of last year.
The workshops are informal, relaxed and thoughtful days. I share the secrets behind my different techniques, supporting you as you experiment with new techniques, pattern and shape, to create your own original artwork.

The day includes
*Artist's show and tell using my own artworks
*All materials
*Time in the garden looking at plants and pattern(weather permitting)
*A delicious seasonal lunch(Janet caters to all dietary needs) and afternoon cake
*There's a goodie bag to take home

 These workshops run from 10am-4pm, are for all abilities and a maximum of 7 people, tickets are £70.
