Bath Watercolour Workshops postponed

Following the new lockdown announcement, it is sadly necessary to postpone all physical Bath Watercolour Workshops until later this Spring. Bath will need to be out of Tier 3 health alert level before they can be reorganised. I am individually contacting those who have bookings.

If, like me, you can see the wintery weeks stretching out ahead of you, you may like to join in my Zoom alternative workshops. There are monthly landscape workshops and a new January portrait masterclass over two Saturday mornings. Please visit my Online Workshop page for more: 

Physical workshops – clarification being sort:

January Bath Watercolour Workshop:
Bath is now in Tier 3 health alert level. I am seeking clarification for the January 27 workshop and will be contacting those with bookings individually.

To hear about future workshop events:
Please email Catherine to be pencilled in for the physical February and March Workshops and/or to be kept up to date about future dates. Bath Watercolour Workshops are designed to help you brush up on your watercolour techniques, loosen your painting style or learn to use this expressive watercolour medium. I hope to see you later in 2021!

Zoom Workshops Programme: There is a new monthly watercolour workshop January-April 2021 on a Wednesday mid-month on Zoom. For more details and to book visit:

New Saturday beginners workshop!

There is now a new weekend watercolour session planned for Saturday 20 February 2021 at Widcombe Social Club. (This has replaced the Friday 19 February date.) All the above workshops take place at this spacious upstairs venue. Should the venue have to close temporarily under new government guidelines, you will be offered a replacement workshop date or a refund.
