What we need to know about you:
We cannot accommodate those with special dietary needs unless, we are forewarned. All food, save what we grow here, has to be purchased before a course begins, in local towns. Advance notice is essential. Regarding your own work, it is helpful to know what you want from a course and to see what your work is like. Please bring examples of work, originals or photos, and sketchbooks, if you can.
Subjects for painting: This is a very small holding but has varied terrain within a compact area. The river cuts through the holding and when low is easily accessible. On either side are woods and two wild fields. The garden and buildings present close views while from the garden and studios, you have landscapes of wooded hills and fields. Two ponds for wildlife also give still water for painting reflections. In the yard, there are old walls, sheds, heaps of wood with flowers and weeds growing through them and, of course, chickens and one or two cats.
