Watercolour Workshops


I am a qualified teacher with over 20 years experience of teaching art and design from level 2 (GCSE and GNVQ) all the way to level 4 (HND or Degree). I run watercolour workshops in a variety of locations in the Manchester Cheshire area and can teach workshops to groups and societies upon request.

Covid 19

Due to Covid 19 I am currently not running watercolour workshops. I hope to restart lessons in September, please keep checking this page or join my FaceBook Watercolour Workshop group to be kept up to date with details.

YouTube Tutorials

In addition to my workshops I now have a YouTube Channel containing several watercolour demonstration video tutorials. You can find my channel by clicking the following link youtube link.

Patreon Group

I am planning to start a Patreon group in September for online tuition. My initial idea is for the group is to have a single theme each month; this subject will be taught in 4 videos. The first video will introduce the theme including compositional ideas and sketching techniques to simplify and abstract from the subject. There will then be 2 painting technique video demonstrations with a final video reviewing work produced and discussing common questions raised by the group relating to the theme. The Patreon platform is great and allows members to view videos as many times as they like or download them if required. The group will be supported by a forum allowing work to be shared and questions to be asked. If you feel the Patreon group would be of interest to you please let me know and I will email you with further details prior to its launch.
