Welcome to Painting My Way

It is with great regret that I have to announce that I will no longer be running my workshops after Dec 10th 2016 due to health reasons.
It has been a very, very hard decision to make ....

We have met many lovely people and made many friends over the 12 years the workshops have been running..
Its been a wonderful journey for all concerned--so many laughs along the way, as well as the beautiful masterpieces that were created in my workshops.

I know, because you have told me , that I have changed lives, made you feel confident and opened up a whole new world--not many people can say that and I feel privileged to have been part of that..

My last workshop will be on Sat Dec 10th--''Summer Day''... fitting as it is my signature painting.. so a huge ''Thank You'' to everyone who has made ''Painting My Way'' what it is today.

Every workshop that has been planned is now full ..

I will still be painting--just not running my workshops..and the copyright of all my painting subjects in the workshops will remain mine..

Bill and I will miss the Saturday workshops so much...Saturdays just won't be the same without the 'bashing and tickling' and all the banter that goes on...

We have been quite overwhelmed by all the phone calls, messages, cards, flowers and gifts we have had since I broke the news about me having to stop the workshops..
Not a single day has gone by without someone getting in touch...

Its wonderful knowing just how much you all loved the workshops, and I am very, very sad to be finishing, but the long term steroids I have been taking have caused my spine to crumble causing awful pain and weakness and making it very hard to walk/paint etc..it has got a lot worse very quickly causing me to have to retire earlier than I thought I would..

After pondering about this for a while I have decided to try and do a few small private workshops (up to 4 people)
The response since I said  said I was finishing has been quite emotional for me,, and quite humbling..
 My intention is to rest completely from Christmas until the end of April and hopefully get my condition and steroids under control and be able -fingers crossed-to do a few workshops..please contact me if you would be interested in doing one...places are already being booked...and there are not many of them, so please don't leave it too long!

Welcome to "Painting My Way", the home of the 'bashing 'brush and 'tickling' brush.. wonderful paintings are created using these two brushes-along with a few others of course!
If you have always wanted to paint but thought you couldn't--I will prove you wrong--as long as you can hold a brush and understand what I show you-you will take home a painting to be proud of - we always have great fun - the workshops are very relaxed and laid back...so come along and join in the fun.... I will look forward to meeting you there!


The workshops are held near to my home at  St Peters Catholic Church Parish Rooms,Henley Road, Ludlow, SY8 1QZ-----Google map it for details on how to get there!
Most of the workshops run from 10am --2pm ish but do sometimes run over by a few minutes now and again-so please treat it as a day out!

You can bring a packed lunch with you-we stop for lunch at 12pm,
but we do take an order to the nearby cafe for sandwiches, jacket spuds etc etc and Bill collects it at 12pm when we stop for lunch..you can place your order for food when you arrive at the workshop.

As you will see from the reviews on Trip-advisor the workshops are very popular - with many people returning time after time.
We always have a lot of fun as well as learning to paint!
