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.

Painting water in all its many forms can sometimes be perceived as a testing subject. Th is four-day course, aimed at all abilities, is designed to take a closer look at how to depict this ever-changing, fascinating subject, using watercolours and/or acrylics. Day one will be spent in the studio, practising and improving techniques through a series of exercises; then, weather permitting, we will be working outside painting the river Stour, the Mill pool, or the weir at Flatford or further afield painting the estuary around Manningtree. On several evenings after supper there will be a demonstration.

Bring a friend!
