About us

Field Breaks started out in the Autumn of 2007 to provide a selection of professionally tutored illustration workshops in the Peak District. This followed the demise of similar workshops in the area and filled a much needed gap for people wanting short affordable art breaks in botanical illustration and landscape painting.  Such was the demand for this provision that over the following years the programme has been extended to include a greater selection of courses and venues, along with a growing number of specialist professional tutors.

In 2020 we are pleased to be able to offer a full programme of workshops in drawing, painting, botanical illustration, realistic, natural history, landscape, abstract, mixed media including textiles and craft workshops in stained glass, jewellery making and wet felting.

Please click on the Courses button to see a listing of all our 2020 workshops.  Materials are provided for many of the workshops with a list of what to bring to workshops under the course details.  As always non-participating partners or friends are welcome to join the workshops – please contact us for details.

We look forward to meeting you for a wonderful year of art, textiles and craft in 2020.
