Our experienced Artist Guide, Fi Wilkie, has been supporting and inspiring her students with her approach for many years. With a background and formal training in Art and Design and extensive experience in teaching 'lapsed artists' and beginner adults, she has developed a range of dynamic, accessible and joyful teaching tools and exercises to help free up thinking, inhibitions and actions around art making.

Details-Day 1: Saturday afternoon workshop - Cabernet & Colour
Let the inspiration wine has offered Artists for centuries take its joyful effect on you, during this easy to do, playful mixed media, watercolour and collage class.

Start with a glass of wine. Nibble on a delicious cheese platter while you relax and paint the afternoon away, taking home your own ready-to-frame painting at the end. Relax with new friends or laugh with some old ones, these are social classes and designed to be easy for all participants.

Details - Day 2 : During Sketchbook Explorer we provide each group member with the tools and understanding they need to start to unlock their own creativity and begin to see and express the world around them in their own wonderful unique ways. This highly accessible 'break it down' approach claims a 'no fail' rate...and may even inspire you to continue to record and create as you continue on more travel adventures!

Learn how to use the water colour paints, hand made papers, inks and mixed media tools to produce your own version of one of Fi’s own images.
