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.
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!!
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.

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…

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.
What a lovely afternoon: instruction & fun. I had not held a paint brush for more than 30years but with Sarah’s help and encouragement I spent an absorbing,satisfying afternoon exploring colours and producing very acceptable flowers. Thank you, Sarah, I could be tempted to come again.
Had a lovely time at the workshop. A friendly setting, delicious food and a great teacher. In just one day, Sarah managed to give us enough basics to enable us to start making beautiful paintings straight away. I have always loved watercolour paintings but was not brave enough to try it myself; after the workshop, I now have the confidence to do it. I especially enjoyed the colour mixing exercise which showed us the potential of creating endless different shades using only 3 primary colours. Tha…
What a fantastic workshop! I attended the 2 day Watercolours for Beginners course and have been wonderfully inspired. Sarah is a brilliant tutor and explains everything so clearly. I was amazed at the pictures I produced over the two days. We were a group of seven and all got on so well, it was a lovely way to learn. Will definitely be on another course in the near future. Thanks Sarah.
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!
