These special painting days at Burghley are always informal and friendly, with plenty of opportunity to watch and ask questions. Sandra will show you her own wet-into-wet watercolour techniques and you will have ample time to put these into practise, with help and encouragement from her throughout the day. View the list of subjects for Burghley Courses 2019.
"I think that Burghley is such a delight for any artist, there are so many beautiful aspects to choose from. I have combined a selection of these with other subjects which are my watercolour favourites. I really hope that you can join me on one or more of these special days, they are a chance to relax, enjoy the enchanting surroundings and the pleasure of painting in watercolour. I try to make the day stress-free, with lots of demonstration painting. Everyone has different abilities and the day is yours to paint at your own pace. I do have some lovely comments from people at the end of each course, telling me how much they have enjoyed their day and how pleasantly surprised they are by what they have achieved."
These special watercolour painting days will be held in the education rooms of the Brewhouse Centre, close to the main house. Just bring along your usual watercolour materials, plus extra watercolour paper to try out new techniques.
If required, paper and a palette of student colours can be provided to use on the day at a cost of £6, please order these when booking.
Classes run from 10.30am – 4.00pm and include morning and afternoon refreshments. At lunchtime (12.30 – 1.30pm) please feel free to visit our Orangery Restaurant or Garden Café, or alternatively you could bring a packed lunch and enjoy a picnic in the extensive and attractive grounds.
