Workshops in Leicestershire

Come and relax in comfortable surroundings and learn to use ‘pastel on velour’ the easy way.
My workshops cater for all artistic abilities, even if you feel you have none you’ll be pleasantly surprised at just what can be achieved in one day, whether you are a complete beginner just starting out or you’re already using pastels but would like advise & encouragement in taking your art one step further then these are the workshops for you.  
All workshop materials are included in the price, but feel free to bring along any pastels/pastel pencils of your own and I’ll be more than happy to advise you on how to achieve the optimum results with them when you return home.  Additional materials including velour, soft pastels and pastel pencils will be available for purchase on the day if you want that little something extra to take away.

All workshops have limited places so please book early to avoid disappointment!


” I just wanted to say how much i enjoyed Saturday’s workshop.  I loved everything about it – the people were friendly, the food was great and the tuition and work were brilliant.  The time just flew by as it does when you’re enjoying yourself, there was no pressure to complete or get things right first time and I felt so relaxed!  So thankyou again and will hopefully be booking the next one soon!”  Karen King

“I just want to thank you for a fantastic day yesterday. I haven’t been to an art class since I left school (in 1973 !!) and I was wondering if I would be completely out of my depth! I probably was, but it wasn’t too obvious and I found the day really helpful and it has given me renewed inspiration – so much so that I have just booked onto your February workshop! In the meantime, I will keep practicing – so who knows?”  Peter Gooden

“Thank you so much for such a wonderful workshop. You are so inspiring as a teacher and a person, I learned so much and am so eager to start on another.. What I really loved too was how wonderfully friendly and relaxed it was…Thank you, I will be saving for another for sure….”  Stephie Butler
