Join Rita Sadler, a Leicestershire-based artist, for a quiet few hours painting in the woods. This two hour, mixed ability class will explore the world of "plein air" painting - the practice of painting outdoors.

This is an opportunity to slow down and reconnect with nature, practicing the mindful art of painting in the peace and quiet of our Woodland Workshop at Hunt's Hill. The session will be led by Rita Sadler, an art tutor with over 20 years experience in teaching art and crafts.

The workshop is suitable for all abilities - from newbies to novices! She will demonstrate how to interpret a woodland scene using simple tips and tricks, taking inspiration from the wooded landscape around you, and will encourage you to experiment with a wide range of materials.


£20 per attendee, plus an optional £5 for material hire. 


We have two sessions available. Choose from:

  • 10am-12pm, Sunday 30th April
  • 1pm-3pm, Sunday 30th April


This event is mixed ability, and is suitable for complete beginners and those with more experience. Please note: children under the age of 18 must have an accompanying adult attending the session with them.
