Watercolour Painting Workshop
Event Information

Sunday 19th July 2020

When: 10am   
Where: Abbey House

This adult workshop on Sunday 19 July at Abbey House runs from 10.00am to 3.30pm.
It will be suitable for beginners and those with some experience who wish to develop their skills.

A place on the workshop will cost £55, including materials and as places are limited advance booking, either online or in the abbey shop, is essential. As lunch is included, please advise us of any dietary requirements at the time of booking.

Jackie Henderson is a passionate watercolourist who takes inspiration from nature and the changing seasons. Somerset born and bred, her love for this county is evident in the paintings she produces.
Largely self-taught, it is the constant challenge of trying to control this free flowing medium that compels her to paint local landscapes, frequently featuring Glastonbury Tor and the surrounding Somerset Levels, as well as birds and flowers.

The theme of the workshop will be ‘Summer Flowers In All Their Glory’ and this will include some work on hydrangeas and roses, which will be perfect for some on site sketching, weather permitting, before completing your painting.

While Jackie will provide materials, you are welcome to bring your own favourite paints should you wish.

Please note: There is a £1 booking fee when booking online. Tickets are non-refundable.
