Winter landscapes workshop 2016


Surround yourself with inspiration !


lunch in the garden – weather permitting! It’s good to have a break and chat with friends.

Workshop days are held at my lovely Effingham studio from 10.30am until 4.30pm. Numbers are limited to ensure everyone has enough space to work and personal attention from myself. The fee includes all drinks, a delicious  lunch (veggies are fine) and loads of materials to sample and use.

The days start with a demonstration for using various media and techniques, followed by studio time to experiment, with as much help and guidance as required. All abilities are very welcome, with beginners and experienced artists alike enjoying a creative environment and exchange of ideas.

The workshops are always popular, so to secure your place please e-mail me with your choice of day. You may either pay in full, in advance, or pay a deposit of £20 with the balance paid on the day. Payment can be made by cheque to T. Pearson (address : Speranza, Orestan Lane, Effingham KT24 5SN)  or by PayPal to tessa@pmuk.com. If a workshop is cancelled within 7 days, refunds are only made if the place can be filled. Please e-mail or telephone me for any more information. t: 07736 211105 /01372 452900 e:tessa@pmuk.com.

If workshop numbers are very low, I may postpone or cancel a workshop day, but I will give plenty of notice for rebooking.
