Courses have been running succesfully since September. We  began with two 5 day  plein air landscape courses.( see gallery)

Then  this was  followed  by  three  more courses :- Still-life, Portrait and a Life Class which have all been  studio based and indoors.

We have restricted the class size to 6 for the time being. However , we may be able to increase the numbers to 8 at a later date pending on regulations and whether they will have changed.


We are up to speed with Covid regulations,hygiene, and common sense. The studio and dining room have 25 ft high ceilings and are well ventilated. At the entrance of the studio there are free masks and hand disinfectant gel.  Then there are three sinks in the studio for wasking hands and a endless  supply of throw away paper towells. Masks will be worm when moving around ,but can be taken off when you are at your work space  and static. All work spaces are two meters apart minimum . Places in the dining room will be at a  social distance  and masks do not have to be worn when seated. The lunch is vegetarian  and it is outsourced to  a local caterer and is excellent.

As you might gather the rules in Wales are slightly different from England. The courses will accept those with a “double jab” or booster.  We will also ask  you take a  “rapid flow test ” 24 hours before you arrive. You can pick these up at any chemist. If you happen to test positive then you can postpone your place on your course, at no extra charge, to another date

I hope you understand. We need to reassure everyone who comes here that it is a safe enviroment.
