These are days and weekends where Stuart and Ruth bring together the pastimes of drawing, painting and walking.

They hope that you will enjoy the opportunity to begin a beautiful sketchbook/visual diary on one of their guided walk and draw days and then feel inspired to extend your visit to a second day of informal tuition in their studio. Here you'll be shown how to create a larger finished painting based on one of your new sketches. At the end of this studio day you will leave with a painting to be proud of. We even frame it for you!

Price of our Wickerwalks

Day one - Walking and sketching only - £25
Day two - studio day only (we'll provide the sketch for people only joining us on this day) - £50
