10:00 - 16:00

This two-day course provides an introduction to drawing and watercolours, as well as an opportunity for you to experiment under guidance. Diaries can have all sorts of purposes and, with the growing popularity of bullet journals, sketchbooks and gratitude diaries, their positive effects on mindfulness and mental health are widely promoted. To keep a journal in some form is a popular ambition but rarely seen beyond the first few pages, which is understandable; writing an entry every day can seem a daunting commitment. As such, this weekend is also a chance to create a lasting habit of journaling which can either be kept purely for travel, or transition to a year round sketchbook.


- Morning: Book-binding - make your own pocket journal

- Afternoon: Painting seashells and local, seasonal flora - An introduction to watercolours


- Morning: Illustrating food, drink and culture

- Afternoon: The journey -Landscapes, buildings, and accommodation.
