The Turning Tree Project serves as a series of supportive workshops at the seasonal change times of the year where time is spent alone in nature, and art making in the studio as a way of exploring an intuitive relationship between the natural world and the imagination. Outdoor sessions are in rural countryside close to Ware, Hertfordshire. Studio sessions include discussion of pan cultural ideas and approaches to imagination.
Each of four seasons has two SATURDAY workshops 9.30 am - 4.30 pm
Fees: The cost of each two-day workshop is on a sliding scale £30 - £57.


Mixed abilities class exploring drawing and painting to create individual project work.

Individual project work involves creating and developing themes and images that are meaningful to you. This can be from natural forms, landscapes, people or still life, or from your imagination, a response to music, literature, mythology or poetry as well as historical and contemporary artists and art forms from around the world.

For those with less experience the methods and materials of drawing and painting are initially taught. Those with more experience are encouraged to explore project work straight away.

Friday mornings 10.00 - 12.30
10 week term - £150.00
