Teaching weekends 2108


Time for you

A relaxing retreat on the beautiful Loop Head Peninsula, Ireland.

land 1            land 2

Be inspired by the local dry stone walls, incredible geology, the lighthouse and friendly welcome. Depending on the weather we will go out to take photos/draw or stay inside and draw from the wonderful views and artifacts in and around my colour and interesting home...

You will create several drawings, which can then be made into printing blocks. We will print onto paper and fabric to create beautiful layered surfaces on which to stitch -by hand.
Sit and stitch in the big, bright teaching room, or relax and enjoy sitting next to the log burner. Maybe even outside if the weather is good.

It really doesn't matter whether you can draw, or not. There are always other ways . . .

These retreats will be good fun. We can be quiet, we can have music – we can dance and sing, but whatever we do, you will leave refreshed and ready to face the world after a colourful break with friends new and old.

The course details will change slightly with the weather which of course can never be guaranteed.

Places will be limited to 6 as Kim would like the opportunity to spend time with each student.

The price of the weekend will be 250 per person.

This will include all tuition, some materials, welcome drinks on Friday with nibbles, coffee and teas through the weekend and lunch on Saturday and Sunday.

Not included is your accommodation, transfers from airports and evening meals. All these can be arranged by Kim if you need suggestions. There are plenty of local B&B’s.
