A bit late, but the Magic of Watercolours was a really fun day with lots of painting and ideas that were new to me. Using quite cheap paints, pastels and bits of card the effects were quite stunning. As ever, Sarah builds such confidence that ‘having a go’ just seems normal. Lovely group and lunch, mmmmm. I’m looking forward to the next one.
A fabulous two days with Sarah, my friend Wendy and four other ladies getting to grips with Acrylics! Really good fun in class which was relaxed but educational I learnt a great deal. We also had amazing food at Sampsons Farm over the two days. I hope very much to do another workshop with Sarah in the near future.
My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the two day “Magic of Watercolours” followed by the two days Acrylics workshop. Sarah is just lovely – extremely talented and a great teacher! Sampsons Farm is homely, comfortable, friendly and the food was delicious. Would love to return in the future.

Spent a most enjoyable afternoon with Sarah, and learned a lot about colour ! I am inspired to practise more and experiment with flower painting. Thank you, Sarah!!
I went to the drawing workshop yesterday and enjoyed it immensely. I had tried to draw but found that I had lost all of the skill I had built up many years ago. However just during this one day workshop I was amazed at how much was achieved and really proud of the drawings I took home. Thank you Sarah for a really great day and I now feel inspired with more confidence to practice more.
Such a lovely way to spend an afternoon! This refresher was just what I needed to inspire me once again – I left on Tuesday afternoon with real determination to start creating my own masterpieces! Thank you for your inspirational teaching and I look forward to coming along to another workshops soon!
The day started in Sampsons Restaurant over morning coffee. It gave us all a chance to relax, which was very reassuring. Sarah put everyone at ease with her lovely, bubbly personality. Sarah’s instruction was very clear, and backed up with well prepared notes for everyone. In the afternoon, the full extent of Sarah’s experience and expertise became apparent. She seemed to find almost unlimited time for each of us, coming round regularly to offer help and support. There was no pressure, yet I…

What a fun time my daughter Tilly had with my Dad at the watercolours workshop. Really enjoyed mixing paints to create colours and gave her confidence in her own abilities! She produced some great, colourful pictures that she was very proud of and it was a lovely environment in which my Dad could enjoy something different with her. Plus the cake I hear was wonderful. Definately love to do it again!
Sarah’s workshops are inspiring, relaxing and most of all great fun. The watercolours are as vibrant and lovely as Sarah herself who is a natural teacher to even the most nervous pupil. She makes it look so easy and breaks things down to simple shapes which gives you confidence to really have a go and produce your own individual pictures. I have been doing workshops for three years now and have met some lovely people to chat to over the delicious lunch. I can’t wait to get to the next workshop.
My friend Carole said most of it but I would like to comment on Sarah’s infinite patience, imagination and cake making.
I came back full of ideas and have passed on tips to my partner who was inspired to use one of Sarah’s techniques and produced a masterpiece!
I too would love to do another workshop with Sarah.
