Online Soft pastel workshops to encourage beginners and challenge experienced artists

In-person workshops

I regularly run soft pastel workshops in Wimborne on Thursdays. These face-to-face workshops have started again in September 2021. Please ring or email or click here to be added to the mailing list to be kept up to date on new dates.

Online Autumn Term

I’m excited to share my first Online Autumn 2021 Series, ideal for people who want to learn in a friendly online community and enjoy the flexibility of recorded workshops. These workshops can be bought as a series or individually. I run a 2 hour Live session on Tuesday mornings and it’s recorded so you can work at a time and pace that suit you. Read more about it here.

One to one teaching

I love helping my students achieve their goals. If would like to have one to one tuition on a topic of your choice with me either via email or video calls, I have a limited number of sessions available each month. I charge £25.00 for constructive feedback on artwork via email or you can book for one to one video calls, where we can discuss your artwork and design a bespoke. These start at £40-00 for 45 mins.

New to Soft Pastels beginners workshop

If you are a beginner, I suggest that you start with workshop Number 1

As my own passion is Seascapes, I have created a progressive series of ten workshops with a seascape theme. Although each workshop is self-contained, I have structured them progressively so that they can be taken together as a course. If you are a beginner, I suggest that you start with Number 1. Otherwise just look through the series and find a workshop that inspires you! If you’re keen to learn then you can book all 10. Working with a theme is one of the most effective ways of re-enforcing your learning. Seascapes are brilliant for building confidence and developing your skills.

Each of workshop is a full length pre recorded demonstration of my creative process and a lesson in pastel painting. These newly developed videos are designed for you to paint along to at your own pace. They’ve taken me approximately an hour to create each artwork, though you should leave yourself a little longer to create your own version. Take regular breaks. You can pause or rewind each one and play it as many times as you like. The lessons are deliberately slow paced, so that you can see, understand and absorb each detail as you create your own artwork. As I work, I share with you a progressive series of tips and tricks to help you develop your technique and confidence.
