Watercolour painting lesson Workshops - "pamper" days. 
Relaxed and informal with lots of individual help and encouragement. 
I do demonstrations of various techniques - step by step stages.

Refreshments are provided on arrival and mid afternoon. 
Lunch with a glass of wine taken in the barrel vaulted dining room in the base of the pele tower (c. 1380).  This gives painters a chance to chat and relax. 
Complete beginners - all the techniques and information on materials to get you started.  At the end of the day you will have painted your first watercolour.
Beginners - some confidence building of techniques you are unsure of. You will be given the support and encouragement to experiment.
