Glorious Gardens and River Estuaries is a wonderful late summer workshop with artist Julia Cassels in Woodbridge, Suffolk.

Julia leads this short art break with watercolour demonstrations, composition and colour exercises as well as one-to-one tuition time, both outdoors and in the Art Safari Studio.

Glorious Gardens & River Estuaries takes you out into the Suffolk countryside as well as the market town of Woodbridge, sketching and painting en plein air.  We venture to parts of Suffolk that have enchanted artists, poets and authors over the centuries.  As a backdrop are the river estuaries, beautiful country churches and serene gardens.

As one of the ‘big sky’ counties, we can expect huge skies with magnificent cloudscapes to paint (and we will have some wet weather options at our locations just in case!)

The Art Safari Studio has fabulous views of the Deben estuary from the elevated deck.  The iconic Tide Mill is a few steps away and the mysterious Anglo-Saxon burial site at Sutton Hoo is just across the river.

Enjoy the company of your fellow artists with fulfilling days of artistic exploration and convivial evenings – all in line with the current social distancing regulations.
