The day will begin with a brief description of the properties and uses of oil paint before setting up your subject. You will select a nice jug from Daphne’s extensive collection and some flowers, probably Nasturstiums or rosebuds.

Once set up you will be painting on a small, deep canvasses so that it can be free standing, say on a bookcase where people would like a jug of flowers or hung on wall.

Since restarting our events in summer 2020, we have introduced changes to the way we operate; including reduced class sizes. The studio has been re organised to enable everyone to remain socially distant whilst at their workstation and hand sanitiser is provided. A large video screen has been mounted on the wall to enable everyone to view demonstrations from where they are working, eliminating the need to gather around the tutor. Lunch is now in the form of a packup to be eaten at your workstation; it may be served hot or cold. Drinks are available all day on a self serve basis.

Please try to arrive 15 to 20 minutes before the event begins to allow plenty of time to get settled in. The wearing of face masks is not required whilst at your workstation, but we would ask you to use one when moving about the studio.
