These workshops have proved to be very popular and productive. Workshops carried out at your usual art club venue from 10.00am to 4.00pm or time by agreement. Class limited to 20 people to allow for individual help. Fee payable against invoice on the day.
£220 per day + travel costs + tutor's light lunch provided by group.
