Workshops: My workshop timetable is a little different from the usual - you decide how many days and when it should happen. If that suits you, gather a group, 2 - 4 people - or more if they can help with transport.
When you have a date in mind, phone me on 03 442 7757 or 027 4538 636.
I can suggest good accomodation in Glenorchy. Rental cars are sited next to Queenstown airport if you prefer to fly.
Friends/partners are welcome but I suggest that they read or go fishing! They don't get charged!!
Keep in mind: Glenorchy's summer is hot and the light is too high – late March to mid October is best. It's cooler, but we get lovely clear, calm weather with snow on the tops and nice long shadows. Spring can be too variable.
Location: I prefer to do schools here in Glenorchy surrounded by a fantastic landscape, but if a large group wants to take part, (up to 12 or so), I'll come to you - it's cheaper and helps save the planet! We will paint "plein - air" or, If I come to you, your group needs to have an indoor space that is suitable if the weather turns bad.
What I can offer: A demonstration painting, teaching on design, colour, tones, brushwork, etc, advice on equipment, the painting process - everything I know. A critique of your work and good natured fun alongside learning to paint.
What you need to bring: Easel, palette, several large brushes, paints, medium, dipper, canvasses in various sizes, paper towels, kerosene, a tin for washing brushes, warm clothes and boots, a hat, insect repellent, and a determination to make progress in your painting.
Prices: $300 each/ per day for small groups, $250 each for groups of 5 or more. I negotiate a price with groups when larger numbers are involved.
