Dorset - - Art Courses -

skilled and tal­ented, in­clude in­ter­na­tion­ally renowned wildlife artist Guy Combes and pro­fes­sional cal­lig­ra­pher Gaynor Goffe, as well as renowned artist Julie Ann Scott and lino printer Hugh Dun­ford Wood, both of whom hail from Dorset.

Most of our work­shops are suit­able for com­plete be­gin­ners and, to en­sure ev­ery­one gets plenty of one-to-one at­ten­tion, we have a limit of up to 12 par­tic­i­pants. Our most pop­u­lar cour­ses so far have been in­cred­i­bly di­verse, from Stone Carv­ing with Dorset-based sculp­tor John Davey, through to the Botan­i­cal Art work­shop with Ju­lia Trickey, one of the UK’s most re­spected botan­i­cal artists.

As this is our first year I am still dis­cov­er­ing which cour­ses are the most pop­u­lar, it has been a steep learn­ing curve at times! I have tried to keep a broad range of top­ics and we are con­tin­u­ally ad­ding more cour­ses, so do keep check­ing our web­site as you may see a new work­shop that might suit you or some­one you know. They make ideal Christ­mas or birth­day gifts with a dif­fer­ence.

Most of the cour­ses are for one or two days and they al­ways in­clude a de­li­cious lunch freshly pre­pared by The Gallery Café chef, plus teas and cof­fees through­out the day. We wanted Sculp­ture by the Lakes to be the in­spi­ra­tion for many of the cour­ses, which is why some of the cour­ses start with a stroll around the park, draw­ing in­spi­ra­tion from the lakes, river, wood­land, gar­dens and Si­mon’s sculp­tures. 2 – 3 Novem­ber: Cre­ative Pho­tog­ra­phy with Jacqui Hurst Im­prove your pho­tog­ra­phy skills and cap­ture the essence of au­tumn at Sculp­ture by the Lakes.
