Workshops and online courses

I am a painter, who loves to teach. Starting on 21 May and throughout 2021 I am running a series of day workshops at the beautiful setting of Micklems Farm near Twyford in Berkshire. I hope you might join me on one. 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
