About The Event
We’re heading back to Staithes with the wonderful Lori Putnam for 2022! This will be Lori’s third workshop with us – and what can I say? She is an incredible teacher.
In 2019 we hosted our first workshop on the coastline of Yorkshire with Lori and it was such a success we have decided to host another!
This is a 5 day workshop from the 6-10th of June 2022. Accommodation is included in this workshop.
We recommend if you are flying long haul, you come in a couple of days earlier and stay a day or so later so you can rest and not feel rushed. You will need to make your own way to Staithes from Manchester Airport (recommended airport to fly into). I can arrange a taxi for you, but you’d be best looking for the trains from the airport to Saltburn on Sea. I can assure you, the trip is well worth it. Trains are the least expensive way to get there unless there’s two of you and in which case I would recommend sharing a taxi.
During the workshop we will be based in the beautiful, quaint village of Staithes. We will spend a good amount of time painting there. We will also spend time in the neighbouring village of Runswick Bay.
This workshop will include demonstrations and lessons, as well as both individual and group assignments and critiques.
One of the evenings we will have a top notch cook come into our accommodation and cook a beautiful meal for us. This is included in the course fee. We did this last time and it was a big hit. We also make all of your lunches (lunch box style) and breakfast each day! This is included in the course price. For evening meals, we will go out and eat together most evenings at the local pubs in Staithes.
You don’t need transport for the workshop. If I’m heading to the supermarket and you need something, I can happily get it for you. Also, when we do travel to Runswick Bay, we will have enough folks with cars to share.
Accommodation is covered in the fee, and I have found the most perfect spot for us to all stay and share the experience. The accommodation covers 5 nights of the workshop. If you’d like additional nights, let me know and I can arrange that for you (it will cost per night, but it can be done). The accommodation is pre-chosen before you arrive – and I must let you know that Staithes is an old English village. Please don’t expect Uber here! It’s lucky they now take credit cards! The water might come slower than you are used to, and the door might creak a little… but trust me, this place is just simply beautiful. The accommodation has a large shared dining room and lounge, which also doubles up as somewhere for us to take shelter should it rain.
This workshop is honestly a joy to run, and I hope you will join myself and Lori. We’ve done enough workshops between us now to know how to make this one of the best painting weeks of your life. One you will not forget, and hopefully you’ll leave feeling full of inspiration, with new friends and some lovely paintings to boot!
Join us today! Limited availability due to the class size and accommodations.
See you in Staithes!
