Capture the romance of Italy using soft pastels with spirit washes in this very special workshop inspired by narrow sunlit lanes, archways and shadowy figures. Join award-winning local artist Gwendolin Lewis who has recently returned from a sabbatical in Europe. Don't miss this opportunity to work with a true master to explore this beautiful and versatile medium which has been described as like 'painting and drawing at the same time'.

This workshop is suitable for people with some drawing experience wanting to try something new through to more experienced pastel artists.

Workshop places are limited, ensuring you receive the individual assistance you need.
