Thank you for your interest in our course. The accommodation at the centre is full, however we work closely with the local B&Bs to offer participants the chance to attend as a non-resident and stay within the local area. If you would like to attend as a non-resident provisionally book your place on the course and then confirm your accommodation.  The non-resident price includes evening meal and packed lunch.

Have you ever wondered how to use your sketchbook to its maximum potential? How to gather and assemble information, how and what to draw in your sketchbook and how to develop layouts and designs from your sketches? This practical course is packed full with a series of short drawing and design exercises (including an outdoor drawing exercise each day, weather permitting) which you can go on to apply to other subjects, or use to develop daily drawing exercises. Suitable for everyone whether you are a painter, sketcher, crafter, printmaker or journal writer. Whether you already use a sketchbook, or you’re just a beginner. We will be using a sketchbook and simple drawing equipment such as pens and pencils.

Bring a friend!

If you are attending a course at Flatford Mill at the sole occupancy price, we are offering a special rate for a friend or partner not enrolled on the course to also stay at £50 per night for dinner, bed and breakfast.

Please contact FSC Flatford Mill on 01206 297110 or [email protected] to book this offer.
