What happens if it rains?

There will be a stretch tent you can shelter in, with open sides so you will still have great views of the castle. You will also have access the 600 year old Sounding Hall.  


What to bring?

Whilst some very basic materials will be provided It is expected that attendees will bring their own paints and drawing sundries ie sketch books pens pencils etc some easels can be provided and for this workshop 2 canvas panels 14 x 18” will be supplied, one for each day and some pre prepared mount card for experimenting on. We will be predominantly working with Acrylics so artists are asked to come with good quality paints a basic level of such is Windsor and Newton Galleria, brushes pallet knives and a wet pallet ( baking paper wetted jays cloth and simple plastic tray or cheap baking tray). 

Patrick is fully conversant in all media so you can choose to use what medium you like, you will most certainly gain great experience and tuition from this outdoor event. 

Bring sensible shoes, the ground, although laid to lawn can be uneven. Warm and comfortable clothes, this is Yorkshire after all!
