Workshops at Sandra's Studio in Hoveton (Wroxham) Norfolk

General Information for all Workshops

Workshops are suitable for all levels from complete beginners to advanced as you will determine your own pace and Sandra will be alongside to guide and advise when you need her. Sandra is a professional artist with her own art practice, has a Masters degree in Art Design and Education, has been teaching all her working life especially with adults and is both supportive and enthusiastic about sharing the joy of making art.

The studio is a large, light and airy riverside bungalow with central heating and a log fire in winter and a pretty garden leading down to the river to use in the summer. There is ample parking in the front. It is in Hoveton (sometimes confused with Wroxham) a short walk away from Roys stores, cafes and shops, which has a railway station serving Norwich and the North Coast. Norwich is just 15 miles away.

The daytime workshops starts at 10am and we aim to have finished and cleared up by 4pm. Evening art workshops are between 4pm and 6pm . There are big tables to work at, and a good stock of materials with good overhead lighting. Help yourself during the day to coffee, teas and juice as you wish, there are squishy sofas to rest a while in, and we'll have a break in the kitchen for a light lunch, usually a selection of homemade soups and breads, cheeses and fruits with a cake.

Tuition, refreshments, materials and light lunch £65

Workshop: Saturday 6th April 2019

classwells wreck

Inspired by the coast..... sea, sand, boats, seagulls, pebbles, tideline treasures, shipwrecks, driftwood, groynes, sand dunes, sandcastles, birdlife, the list is endless. We will be working with coastal items that delight you. You can bring in your own coastal treasures or use the stock in the studio. Starting by looking at colour texture and form we will be devising ways to use the coastal items as the starting point for acrylic painted work and exploring the use of gold leaf for the final touches. If you are interested in using textiles and sewing techniques there is ample opportunity to use machines, needles, cloth and threads in this workshop.

Workshop: Friday 3rd May 2019

Inspired by the river .... the studio garden leads down to a 'cut' from the River Bure. Swans, geese, and ducks freely find their way up the slipway and into the garden, especially at lunchtime. Workshops can come to an abrupt 'photographic halt' if the swans bring their fluffy cygnets up to the studio door. There are seats around the garden to sit and sketch the ripples, reflections or plants in the water.

We will be working with capturing colours , textures and shapes building up sample sheets to work from with vibrant coloured inks that swirl and blend. If you are interested in using textiles and sewing techniques there is ample opportunity to use machines, needles, cloth and threads in this workshop.We'll look at creating shape and texture and consider careful illustration against abstracted forms~considering along the way what works for us and why.
