Dates 2023

The March workshop was a great success – more to be confirmed soon! Please sign up to my newsletter if you’d like to be notified

These workshops are suitable for all levels, as there will be elements to take away for every degree of experience, and Catherine can tailor her instruction to suit your ability.

These will all take place at Micklems Creative Studios in Berkshire. A wonderful airy studio in a converted barn surrounded by glorious gardens. Arists have a picnic lunch on the lawns, or in the sunny conservatory and it is always a very enjoyable day.

Mastering oils

We will using a simple still life set up as the subject matter and be painting in oils using a vivid palette. Catherine has extensively studied colour theory, and so we will initially cover the basics of hue, value and tone, before moving onto planning and mixing your colour scheme. Students will learn a systematic approach to painting the subject matter itself, which aims to simplify the alla prima (wet on wet) painting process so students each create a fresh and vibrant piece of work.

Private Tuition

Catherine also does one to one tuition in her sunny studio in Shurlock Row. Tuition is £45/hour, please contact her to arrange times.
