Studio Courses with Rebecca

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, my studio courses have been postponed for the moment. I will definitely be running more courses when it is safe to do so. Please get in touch if you be interested to hear about new dates. If you are already booked on a course, your deposit can be transferred to a future course, or it can be refunded. I cannot wait until we can meet up and make art together again! In the meantime let me know if you need any help with your art, and stay safe xx

These are one day courses at my studio with small numbers of students, focusing on specific subject matter. Days are grouped together to give people who travel a long way the chance to stay in local B & Bs.

Tutor: Rebecca de Mendonca
Times: 10 to 4
Price: £85 per day
This includes materials, teas, coffee and biscuits but not lunch. Let me know if you need us to provide lunch.

‘The art was most enjoyable and I feel that I have learnt a great deal, all credit to Rebecca for teaching me a totally new medium, and giving me the confidence to try new things.’  Angela of Cheam.
