In 2019 we will be offering new accommodation for residential students in the Windrush House Stables (double room ensuite with use of the whole cottage including kitchen, sitting room with woodburning stove, Wifi and TV). We have 3 B&B rooms in the house (double and twin with shared bathroom, and a double ensuite). Also, Ash's Barn at Glebe Farm, Windrush with fabulous views over the Windrush valley (www.windrushbarn.co.uk).

Our One-Day Courses are designed to assist students who are familiar with painting in watercolour, but would like to improve their techniques and add 'atmosphere' to their work. All abilities are welcome, whether you paint regularly or have not picked up a brush for years.

Windrush is the ideal location for watercolour courses, surrounded by unspoilt Cotswold countryside and a short walk from the picturesque River Windrush. The Georgian house, former home of James Fletcher-Watson, R.I., R.B.A., has a large studio space, an elegant dining room for lunch and refreshments, and extensive gardens.

A welcome coffee is served from 9.30am and the class begins with a demonstration in the studio Gallery. A home-made buffet lunch is served in the dining room and the day concludes with tea and a summing-up. Small classes (maximum 11) allow the tutor to give guidance to each course member. Summer courses are usually designed for outdoor painting/sketching while day courses in cooler months take place in the studio. Information and an itinerary about each course is provided on booking.

To book a place, or for more details, please e-mail Josephine Neil on windrush.artcourses@yahoo.com or telephone 01451 844425.
