Field Breaks

Special Interest Art Breaks

Enjoyable and informative Art workshops along with craft and textile courses with experienced professional tutors based in relaxing locations in Derbyshire and around the UK.

Welcome to our 2019 annual programme of professionally tutored art workshops in drawing, botanical illustration, landscape and mixed media painting; alongside workshops in pastels, textiles, printing, jewellery making, stained glass, needlefelting and upcycling.

This year we have expanded our arts programme to include craft and textile workshops along with introducing some new tutors and venues. We hope you will find our programme interesting and find a workshop that appeals to you. Our aim is to provide professional quality workshops, with individual guidance and tuition. We have chosen venues that offer good facilities and have a relaxed feel to add to your experience. Please see the testimonials from previous participants, many of whom are returning in 2019.

Testimonials

“As always the tutor was excellent and I thoroughly enjoyed the course”

Janet, Rochdale

“Thank you for organising such a well run course, tutor is excellent, it has been really enjoyable”

Mina, Peterborough

“As always, tutor excellent, thoroughly enjoyed the course”

Megan, Cheshire

“A thoroughly enjoyable way to join likeminded people of all ages and abilities to create your own individual masterpiece. The tutors are brilliant, willing to share their knowledge and experience, and the bikkies help the creative juices to flow. The setting at Barlow is beautiful and inspiring. It’s a great way to spend a day. The only downside is trying to limit yourself from enrolling on all the courses – they are all inviting.”
