The Versatility of Felt

Clare Bullock is teaching this class at the Granary Studio on Fri and Sat 11 and 12 Nov from 10-4 .. it will be a great class , Clare is a brilliant tutor and I am very much looking forward to it …. we could squeeze another two students in so , if you are interested then please contact me on granarystudio@hotmail.com    the cost is £90 for the two days and you would need to bring lunch… requirements list is on this site .. just click on the course code in the classes section and you will be switched to the information sheet…

A new course from Mel and a couple of spaces on some others

I am announcing a brand new class from Melanie Rose… We are planning to extend the drawing and painting classes offered here at the Granary in addition to the life drawing that is already offered regularly.

A Painting Day, Abstracting the Figure will run  on Saturday 19th November 2016 from 11.00-16.00, the day will cost £45.00

The materials list can be found by clicking on the course code MR010  and when you visit the classes section on this site and scroll down to Mel’s classes

There a couple of spaces on Caroline Bell’s forthcoming two day class ‘Indigo, the Queen of Natural Dyes’ which costs £90 and will run on Saturday and Sunday 15/16 October 2016…this should be great with Caroline creating an Eco Indigo Vat, so none of the evil substances I have used in the past.

Also, Clare Bullock has a couple of spaces on ‘The Versatility of Felt’ which is coming up on Fri & Sat, 11 & 12 November from  10.00-16.00, this also costs £90, and as always will be a fun packed class.

That’s all the spaces I have for the rest of this year 2016, everything else is full so things are very lively here at the Granary Studio

Hope to see you somewhere on any of the classes, if not …. see you next year!
