This Oil Painting course is designed to guide those new to the world of oil painting by clearly illustrating and explaining materials and a variety of painting techniques. You will not only learn how to paint with oils, but also how to prepare a palette, choose the correct brushes, mix colors, prepare and block-in and so much more. The course is carefully planned in a chronological order, so that concepts build gradually.

What do I need to bring?

Just yourself and an open mind, all tools and equipment will be provided for you.


We will take a short break mid-afternoon for tea or coffee.  If you would prefer just to carry on working, you are most welcome!

What are the times?

The course will start at 2:00pm and run until approximately 4:00pm. There is always the possibility that it may overrun, but we won’t be kicking anyone out if you need to finish a part of your piece!


This course is on the ground floor of our premises with access through the front of the shop.

Cancellation policy: 

If you change your mind about the course or are unable to attend, please notify us a minimum of two weeks prior to the course starting so that the place can be offered to another artist.

Courses will be cancelled if less than 3 people join the course as it will not be possible to run. We aim to contact participants one week  before the course takes place, should this occur and offer a full refund or chance to move to another course, if preferred.
