Utilising the wonderful beach situated just behind our studio wall, we will begin by gathering flotsam and jetsam as source material.  Returning to the studio to experiment with watercolour and ink techniques, focussing on texture, form and colour to capture the essence of our environment. All materials will be provided, however if you have your own paints, pencils, brushes or paper you wish to use you are welcome to bring them along.  The workshop will go ahead whatever the weather as we already have an abundant collection of beautiful beach finds to work with.

Suitable for beginners.  Participants must be over 16 years of age.
