An opportunity for those wanting to start out with watercolour paints, but need some guidance to get to grips with this lovely medium. The three weekly workshops will cover the various aspects that make this medium so versatile and effective – palette colours, paper type, washes, brush types, colour mixing, etc. The theory will be supported by exercises using the local landscape, which you can then practise between the weekly sessions.

The course fee covers the three workshops.
