Our workshops with Helen Rhodes are always relaxed and very creative days. Helen shares the secrets behind her different techniques, and gives lots of support as people create their own artworks.
All our days with Helen are for 7 people and suitable for all abilities.
The workshops include:
Artist’s ‘show and tell’ using Helen's own artworks, art books and materials.
All materials and tools, a worksheet explaining techniques.
Refreshments all day, a home cooked two-course lunch (we cater to all dietary needs) and home baked cake before the final session.
A goodie bag full of treats.
Our workshops are run 10am - 4.00pm by The Refectory Table at a friendly and spacious house with a beautiful garden (which is open to the public each year for the National Gardens Scheme) in Loughborough, Leicestershire.
