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 summer workshops


I'm very excited to be moving into my new DRAW teaching studio at Wheelbirks Farm near Stocksfield. In my first week I will be running two 2-day summer workshops followed by an opening event over the August bank holiday weekend.

Summer Creative Drawing workshops: 

  • Tuesday 24 - Wednesday 25 August
  • Thursday 26 - Friday 27 August

Immerse yourself in the experience of large-scale gestural drawing! The focus is on exploration and experimentation using a variety of materials. I will provide guidance and structure as you need throughout the 2 days. To loosen up we will begin the first day of the course working collaboratively and once you have explored and and got your creative juices flowing, you can spend the next day developing your work in the direction you want to with support and advice from myself and your peers.

The photos here are from a previous summer school. They show a light, airy space in which we could work large and make a mess.....I guarantee it will be the same in my new place!  Whatever your level of drawing experience, you will enjoy this and learn something new.

All materials and equipment provided.

Lunch available from Wheelbirks Parlour. We can pre-order so that it is ready for us at lunchtime. Or if you prefer, you can bring your own packed lunch.

Cost: £110

Please note that places are limited to 8 per workshop so email me at jenny@jennypurrett.co.uk to book your place as soon as you know you want to come. I will contact you with further information and payment details.


DRAW Studio Opening Event

August Bank Holiday weekend

The studio will be open from 10-4 from Saturday 28- Monday 30 August. Pop in and say hello, admire the space and look at work made by myself and by students. And of course, you may want to get a Wheelbirks ice cream whilst you're visiting.
