OUR COURSES

Welcome 

Welcome back to all our clients, we have a wonderful programme for 2024 and we are awaiting confirmation from venues and artists before finally publishing all the details.

We are trying to keep our costs low but as you can appreciate some venues and artists have raised their fees so we have had to make some small increases. On the whole our prices are comparable with Master Art Workshops 2019 prices.

As we have had some last minute cancellations that impacts on the running of our workshops, we have felt it unfair on those who have booked and made arrangements to attend the day. So we are asking that payment is made within a specified timescale to secure your booking and that the workshop can proceed.

We look forward to creating some amazing masterpieces with you this year.

By popular demand, the Guild of Essex Craftsmen's Angelique Samadhi returns for another fun workshop, and this time we will be recreating her own designed pansy trinket dish. 

 

This workshop is great for beginners. Don't worry, you don't need to be able to draw - Angelique will outline the flower for you in chalk on your dish, and after this, you can let rip with your creativity - you don't need to follow a set pattern, it's free flow dotting so if you like, you can use your own interpretation to create something truly unique to take home!

 

All materials are included so you don't need to bring anything except your sense of fun and creativity!

 

Price £50 includes all materials, welcome cuppa and refreshments and cake. Free parking!
