Service Description

On this exciting one-day workshop we will make the most of the North Cornish Coast for inspiration. You'll be immersed in nature, inspired by the beauty of your surroundings, the ideal location to explore and experiment with pencil, ink, charcoal, pastel and paint. We will meet in the main car park, opposite the beach at Crackington Haven, which is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty just west of Bude. Crackington Haven was once a small harbour and has a pub and cafe for refreshments and loos! All levels of experience are welcome. Most materials will be supplied free of charge, including; watercolour paper, drawing and pastel paper, brushes, ink, coloured pencils, charcoal, watercolours, palettes, water pots and kitchen roll but please feel free to bring your favourites. You will need to bring: Sketchbooks (size is up to you but if only bringing one I would recommend an A4. I use several different sizes from A5), pencils, rubbers, favourite brushes, water spray, water bottle (for drinking), hand sanitiser/wipes, apron or old shirt, camera, sunscreen. Pastels, acrylics or oils if wished, boards and canvas. *Please bring a packed lunch, old clothes to paint in and some waterproofs and warm clothes in case of bad weather. Sturdy shoes such as trainers for some walking on coast paths and beach. Bring a hat as it does sometimes get really sunny and something to sit on, lightweight seat if you have one else a rolled up fleece or picnic blanket would be ideal.
