Robin’s Composition and Perspective workshop on Sat 1 February was our first experience of someone seeing our workshop on the website and trying to contact us through that. We are still in the process of setting up all the connections, so I missed the enquiry, but she turned up anyway. We were a small group after cancellations, but we ended up with a good workshop. There have been some requests for another of these workshops so we will try one mid-year.
We would like to run an acrylics workshop in the second half of the year so please contact me with suggestions for tutors.
