Everyone can draw! I have a passion for drawing and I aim to create workshop experiences that help you to tap into and build on your own creative skills.

If you haven’t drawn for a long time or think that you can’t, I’ll give you the boost you need to get you started.

If you are an art graduate or practising artist, I’ll provide exciting, creative challenges for you.

Classes are geared to all levels of drawing experience with the focus always on enjoyment of the drawing process and learning from each other.

“Jenny is a wonderful, energetic and imaginative tutor.”

"I come away from the sessions relaxed and with a sense of having learnt something new every time."

DRAW Autumn Abstracts: 1 day  SOLD OUT
Friday 5 November 10-4  £55  (£40 for 16-25 year olds and those on low income)
10am - 4pm

Using all that Autumn provides us with in terms of vibrant leaves, fallen fruits, and hedgerow berries and seedheads, we will develop large pastel drawings, initially working from observation and then developing these into abstract compositions. This is a day to experiment and have fun with colour and composition.
Suitable for all levels of drawing experience.

DRAW into Monoprint: 1 day  SOLD OUT
Friday 19 November  £55  (£40 for 16-25 year olds and those on low income)
10am - 4pm

A day to play with the simple process of monoprinting. We will use landscape as our focus and explore ways to make monoprints using a variety of techniques including subtractive markmaking, stencils and found materials. Prepare to get messy and experiment with this simple yet absorbing process.
Suitable for all levels of drawing experience. No print experience necessary.

DRAW from the model: 1 day SOLD OUT
Thursday 16th December  £66  (£48 for 16-25 year olds and those on low income)
10am - 4pm

A day of tutored life drawing for all levels of drawing experience. Our mission is to develop drama and energy in drawing the unclothed human figure. Omi will be our model for the day. She will start with short warm up poses and you will explore different aspects of drawing using a range of drawing techniques and materials. We will then work from some longer poses where you can develop more sustained drawings. If you have not done life drawing before, this is a perfect opportunity to familiarise yourself with this discipline in a non judgemental, relaxed environment. If you are already experienced, it is an opportunity to be challenged and try some new approaches to drawing the human form.

DRAW Wild Winterscapes Weekend: 2 days   SOLD OUT
Saturday 18th & Sunday 19th December  £110  
(£80 for 16-25 year olds and those on low income)
10am - 4pm

A pre-Christmas drawing retreat! Come and escape to the studio and create your own wild winterscapes. We will spend the first day exploring a range of approaches, techniques and materials and then spend day 2 working these studies up into a larger scale so that you can create an immersive landscape to lose yourself in for a while!
Suitable for all levels of drawing experience.
