Welcome to my live monthly workshop page, I run two regular sessions a month which run from February through till December, these are located in Essex and East Sussex. There is a theme for each workshop and I'll be providing short demonstrations which reflect the theme, how to approach the subject and particular elements to consider. The workshops are fun, challenging and you'll be guided through with plenty of one to ones. Numbers of attendees for each workshop are between 18 - 21. The workshops cost £40 per session, £10 of which is required as a non refundable deposit for each session booked. If you would like to attend any of the following sessions listed below please do drop me an email with the dates you would like to attend. Thanks again for your interest and I look forward to seeing you in 2022.
