Workshops and online courses

If you want to learn, then I am a painter who loves to teach. Throughout 2021/22 I am running a series of day workshops at beautiful Micklems Farm near Twyford in Berkshire. I hope you might join me on one – three dates in November left! Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you need help choosing a workshop which is right for you. Naturally, covid-security measures will be in place, and you will have a fun and informative experience.

Online courses

If you are unable to attend an in-person workshop my online courses might suit you. You can find them at https://www.lizchadertonstudio.co.uk

They contain films and files, to try to recreate the experience of sitting alongside me in my studio. You have lifetime access, so you can work at your own pace.
