-The Lynne Windsor Workshops in Scotland – www.lynnewindsor.com
“This is an exceptionally beautiful part of Scotland which includes the Tweed River Valley, an area I am very familiar with. The closest town is a place called Biggar, which has the charm of a village, but also has a couple of good restaurants and coffee shops, and a great delicatessen with excellence cheeses! Below is a link to a map of Biggar.”
-The Sarah Wimperis Workshop www.sarahwimperis.co.uk
“These workshops are very simple, there is a meeting point, I will be there, I will be painting plein air. You can join me for some plein air painting tuition then all you need to do is bring your painting gear and your spirit of creative adventure. You can stay for just the morning, just the afternoon or for the whole day. Sit with me and paint, I talk a lot, you will learn and you will work hard but it is fun!”
