Hope you can make the next event at Kellie Castle, Fife on Saturday 27th July 10am – 3.30pm ‘Sketch & Paint at Kellie’. Lots of supportive advice and demonstrations to guide you through the day using a selection of media – watercolour, inks, charcoal and graphite – to capture your experience. This is a great opportunity to develop your creativity with others at this wonderful National Trust for Scotland property that dates from the 14th century, spending time in the Arts & Crafts garden with its vibrant floral displays and stunning aspects of the castle. If not already a member, why not join the NTS on the day and get access to all their other venues around Scotland!
£45 includes all materials and equipment for the day – easels, papers, paints, drawing materials etc. – and access to the garden. Kellie Castle is situated near Pittenweem, Anstruther, in Fife KY10 2RE. Just contact me to book your place.
This coming weekend the 13th and 14th July, the Horncliffe Beer & Music Festival near Berwick on Tweed is the place to be. The Events Team have put together a family-friendly event packed full of music, food and arts – and I’ll be there too! There’s free entry, so come and join me and share in some lively sketching of the goings on – the bands, the food, the dancing… I’ll have lots of materials on hand for those who’d like to have a go using charcoal or line & wash. You can also purchase a sketchbook and materials to use on the day, and then add to after the event – and maybe sign up for some forthcoming classes while you’re there!
Madeline and Tim run the wonderful boutique Hotel Leone, situated in the foothills of the Sibillini mountains of Italy. They will be our hosts for this luxury painting retreat in October 2020. Such a unique opportunity not to be missed, so get in touch with them now as bookings have already started!
