at the Living Classroom in Bonsley Wood, Norton Lane, Durweston, Blandford. DT11 0QE.

This is a very special place in a beautiful glade in the woods. It is a great opportunity to spend the day walking, looking and painting in a very unique environment as there is no vehicle access to the site outside of specified dates and courses.

The Living Classroom is run by the Dorset Coppice Group. It comprises an area of approximately 30 acres of mixed, broadleaved woodland known as Bonsley Wood, together with a classroom, toilets, water and power.

Woods are such other 'worlds' full of darks and lights, moods and atmospheres.

The morning will consist of demonstrations and time experimenting with various techniques and then, weather permitting, we can work outside (or stay in if you prefer) for the rest of the day.

Using a mixture of materials such as emulsion and acrylic paints and a few  painting techniques like wax resist and mono printing,  we will look at different ways of creating the beautiful light, colours and textures that can be found there.


£70 including all materials
