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.
It was inspirational! Sarah demonstrated different techniques and made it all look so easy. She spent time with everyone, building their confidence. With each new technique there was a handout explaining all the details (useful at home). We talked of composition, form and colour with the helpful eye of our tutor, who was genuinely pleased with our attempts. I have signed up for another session.

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!
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.
A wonderful week spent on a residential watercolour painting holiday at Sampsons Farm. Sarah is a very talented and patient teacher and I learned so much. Sarah, Nigel and their team were really welcoming and the accommodation, food and location were perfect for a relaxing retreat. Thank you.

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.
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.
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…
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!!
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…
