Pastel workshop - Clare - 11-3-17.jpg

"Both Sara’s Soft Pastel and Drypoint courses are excellent. Sara has a quiet way of teaching whilst making you feel as if you have resolved any issues yourself.
She is extremely encouraging, knowledgeable and sensitive. Both courses are great fun, incredible value for money and are held in a beautiful setting which in itself gives inspiration to one’s work."

"Sara runs lovely, friendly and very enjoyable workshops. She is a very patient and encouraging teacher -
I have learnt so much!"

"Sara's pastel workshops are not to be missed! I have learnt a lot attending these. Nice small groups with like minded people. Sara is a good, very patient teacher who's own artwork is amazing. Looking forward to the next one!"

We will have a couple of breaks during the day with tea/coffee/juice biscuits and cake provided.

Maximum of 10 students.
