The tuition

This is for those who love the idea of painting flowers in watercolour. The emphasis will be on looking closely, drawing carefully and capturing with accuracy in watercolours the character of the plant. Specimens will be provided and you will be guided to tackle something appropriate to your level of experience. Some experience of painting with watercolours would be desirable.

Tuition will be a mixture of discussion, demonstration and individual guidance.

Your accommodation

The White House is a recently renovated Georgian country house set in an idyllic and peaceful location in the heart of a working farm a couple of miles from Brancaster.

All the bedrooms are beautifully appointed with ensuite bath or shower rooms, tea and coffee making facilities, SKY TV, DAB radio and free WiFi.

There are two delightful sitting rooms, dining room, breakfast room and a huge sheltered terrace in the old walled garden. Tennis court and croquet lawn.

The Studio

We will paint each day in the Little Hall, a stone's throw away in Sussex Barn. The studio is warm and airy, with adjacent kitchen facilities and separate washrooms. Each student will have a desk equipped with a small desk easel. It is advised that each student brings their own rechargeable battery task light.


Arrive at The White House by 4 o’clock on Sunday 10 May. The course start with tea and cake downstairs where you will meet your tutor and fellow students. Settle in to your quarters, check out the studio and convene again for drinks before dinner in the garden room.

Dinner at The White House at 7 pm – followed by an illustrated talk in the lounge.

The course ends after breakfast on Friday.
