Programme for 2017 Workshops & Demos

The Sandpiper Studio opened in 2007 and we are pleased to have had many renowned artists from the UK and abroad sharing their tips and techniques with our students. These visiting artists are specialists in their field and provide an exciting range of workshops and demonstrations to instruct and inspire.

They are usually held on Fridays and Saturdays and cover specific subjects and mediums. The workshops are suitable for all abilities unless otherwise stated, with the emphasis on having fun while learning. A selection of teas, coffee and biscuits are included along with a buffet lunch during a full day workshop.

The studio can accommodate up to 14 students with a desk each in a workshop and approximately 30 students when watching a demonstration.

For students travelling long distances and in need of local accommodation, a wide range of hotels, guest houses and travel lodges can be found within a few minutes drive from the studio. Contact Julie for more information.

mixed media workshop 'coast and cliffs'
20171117,

Friday 17th November 2017

10am to 4pm

£75 including lunch and refreshments

The Sandpiper Studio is hosting two days of mixed media workshops with award winning artist Robert Dutton, students can attend just one or both days and the theme for this weekend is ‘Coast and Cliffs.’

Robert will be using watercolour, gouache, pastel and acrylic inks to demonstrate the range of mixed media techniques he uses when creating his wonderfully expressive paintings. Robert regularly paints outdoors and in all weathers but in the comfort of the studio you will gain a unique insight into how he combines ‘free flowing’ media with soft pastel to create atmosphere and drama in your paintings.

‘I will be using big brush techniques and a bold approach, controlling large washes and multiple layers of colour while employing creative freedom in mark making,’ RD

There will be regular demonstrations, group tuition and plenty of one-to-one tuition throughout the day. These workshops are suitable for artists with some painting experience, improvers and artists who want to loosen up their style to become more free and expressive.
