Join me for a hand-crafted art experience enjoying 5 days in Tasmania. We will be staying in the cottages at the Red Feather Inn just outside of Launceston making use of a 150 year old renovated barn for our studio each day.

Your days are spent immersed in your art and at night we dine by candle light as our chefs prepare local Tasmanian fare from locally sourced produce. There are beautiful gardens to explore as well as plenty of nearby walks along the river to truly experience the beauty of the area before or after class.

If you like your pastel artworks to look ‘realistic’, prefer to work from photos rather than life and want to stay in luxury accommodation whilst indulging your creative side and learning from the best, then this trip is for you. For more details and bookings please see details on web site
