Workshops are between 10:00 and 16:00. Join my husband Robin and me for refreshments, typically including morning coffee, lunch and afternoon tea.

Bring your own drawing and painting materials, although I have some supplies for sale. Please ask for a suggested materials list if you feel this would be helpful. Some plant material will be available but do bring your own if you have something special in mind.

Accommodation:

If you need accommodation, we have a list of local places in and around the village.

UK workshop places are deliberately limited to eight, so that all students get personal attention.

Please book using the link to the form below and send it with your non-refundable deposit of £60. This will hold a place on a workshop if one is available. If there are no remaining places, I will contact you and add your name to the waiting list. The balance of the fee is due six weeks before the workshop starts. Failure to pay at this stage may mean that I will offer your place to someone else on the waiting list.

If you cancel less than four weeks before the start of the workshop, I will retain the full fee. But you may give your place to a friend not already signed up for the workshop.

If you wish to transfer to another workshop, you must let me know at least six weeks before the start of the workshop on which you are booked.

I strongly recommend that you take out appropriate holiday insurance to cover risks such as cancellation, including cancellation due to adverse weather conditions, loss or ill health, as we cannot be held responsible. If I cancel, I will of course give you a full refund.

Please return the completed form and your deposit, made payable to Gaynor Dickeson, Saltings, Windmill Field, Bosham, PO18 8LH. Contact me for details if you wish to pay via bank transfer.

Workshop places fill quite quickly so book early.
