The surrounding fields are dotted with ruined buildings left over from the mining. The 'romantic ruin', a little piece of history, a glimpse into the past. We will go to the site of one and use the setting in our compositions.
Work in the comfort of our function room taking inspiration from our wild and dramatic surroundings. On fine days we can work 'en plein air' at beautiful locations around the farm.
Sessions commence with a chat about the subject matter and media we will be using and finish with a discussion about the day's work. Bring the materials you wish to use or if you require materials please let us know in advance. We now stock a small range of art materials too.
You will need to wear suitable clothing for painting indoors or out, you can either bring a packed lunch or enjoy a simple lunch at the farm. Please book lunch in advance stating any special dietry requirements, £5 per person. Tea, coffee and light refreshments are provided. All workshops must be booked in advance to avoid disappointment.
