My pastel workshops are ideal for beginners to intermediate standard. I like to keep the groups small so that I can give everyone the individual attention and techniques required to produce a portrait they can feel extremely proud of.
All materials are provided but you are very welcome to bring your own pastels if you prefer.
Rather than everyone doing the same subject matter I think it’s nice for each person to do something of their own choice. This can be a pet or a family member or maybe a particular landscape. If you would like to use your own photo as the reference all I ask is that you email me the photo at least 3 days before the workshop so that I can get the necessary preparation done for the day. Alternatively if you haven’t got anything particular in mind you can browse through my portfolio of reference photos on the day.
It’s a very relaxed and informal morning with no pressure to draw as we use a photocopy for tracing an outline.

"Andrea, I am so pleased I attended your workshop, your tuition has given me the confidence to tackle something which I have avoided for such a long time." Teresa (Wellinborough)
"Another fantastic lesson from you Andrea, thanks for such an enjoyable morning xx" Jen (Morcott)
"I really would like to thank you for all the help you gave me, I was so thrilled to be able to come away feeling confident about attempting another picture. I was a bit apprehensive about the pastel class as have not done a great deal of artwork although have always wanted to. It just goes to show given the opportunity and of course the most important thing the right tutor all things are possible! I thoroughly enjoyed the morning and do hope that you will be doing a repeat pastel class in the future. Buttercross House is a super venue with a nice friendly relaxed atmosphere and perfect for a small pastel class. Your method of teaching was superb, I wish you success with your forthcoming craft fairs. I look forward to hearing from you again" Janet (Oakham)
