2020.


UPDATE:

To all my regular and new students. I have had hundreds of great painting workshops over the last 35 years but the events of 2020 have been unprecedented and we don’t know how things are going to resolve. Unfortunately this has led to all my 2020 workshops being cancelled but I have new workshops in the pipeline for next year (2021) so stay tuned and standby for updates.

Breaking news:
Two new national workshops  (painting holidays) have been organised for 2021, refer below (2021) for further details.
