Award -winning artist and tutor Frances Hatch:  Festival Artist in Resident 2018

‘…that’s the real value and privilege of my practice:  I linger in landscape (it doesn’t have to be landscape of course) – and in that attentive ‘hanging around’ more and more of the epxerience will reeal itself.  I know that for as long as I can be present to it – that vivid complexity will grow and grow.’

Tree of Hope – Paint with the tools and colours of your imagination

A playful, thoughtful exploration of what a ‘tree of hope’ might look like for each participant.  Working in the lovely garden of Bridge House or on the terrace we will consider the art of Friday Khalo (featured in Friday’s concert) an work on our own Tree of Hope.

Suitable for all levels of experience or none.  All materials will be provided.  Bring and apron/old clothes. Tea and cake included.

Workshop: En plein air, Thursday 28th June 2-5pm £30

The group will walk slowly to a garden or to nearby countryside depending on the weather (max. 20 minutes walk with very limited art materials*)

We will fill a sketchbook with drawn and painted marks and memories of our sensory afternoon. On our return to Bridge House we will share our experience over tea and cake.
