Peter is available to give watercolour workshops to Art Clubs and Societies and other Social clubs.

An all-day workshop is an ideal environment in which groups can work towards improving all aspects of watercolour technique. Peter will discuss, demonstrate and actively encourage participants to explore each stage of a watercolour as it progresses throughout the day. Working from photographs and sketches either pre-arranged with, and supplied by, the club or, as is more often the case, from source material provided by Peter himself, the object of a day's workshop is to create a finished (or near-finished) work.

All-day workshops usually run from 10am until 4pm, with tea-breaks and lunch-break to suit workshop organisers. Other starting and finishing times may be pre-arranged, provided it falls within a maximum 6-hour period. Workshops of longer duration will be charged extra.

Unless a specific technique or subject matter is requested at the time of booking, Peter will usually choose a subject taken from recent sketching trips. He will discuss the importance of the preliminary sketch in the painting process, and then proceed to paint up in a step-by-step manner from the chosen sketch, drawing attention to, and discussing in detail, the techniques involved as they arise.

A one-day Introductory Workshop for Total Beginners can be provided on request. This would feature exercises on the four basic washes, culminating in a simple first landscape.

Fees for all-day workshops are charged at a set rate, plus travel expenses (negotiable, depending upon distance).
A nominal fee of £1 per person may also be added to the fee to cover the printing of photos and sketches provided by Peter.

The minimum number of participants for a workshop to go ahead is 6.
A recommended maximum number of participants is 20. Groups of more than 20 may be charged extra.
It is important for Peter to know beforehand how many will be attending, so that he knows how many source-material printouts to arrange.

Peter is happy to consider workshop enquiries from anywhere in the UK and abroad.
