SAA Workshop

On Dec 6th, Charlie was at the SAA headquarters for a workshop. SAA members could attend the Workshop or follow it live on the internet. SAA members can see the video by logging in to their account and following the links.

 

This is Gary who makes the technology happen.

And this is what he is looking at.

           

 

This was the picture, a snow scene showing Charlie’s house.

And here are the results of the hard work.

           

Dry Water Arts Centre Amble Northumberland

Charlie was asked to give a workshop in November at the Dry Water Arts Centre in Amble, just up the road from where he lives. This is a new venture and contact details are shown below.

Obviously, Charlie was very pleased to do so and to meet Frances who runs the Centre and our friend Luke who helps out. The workshop was very well attended and everyone had a good time, a lovely lunch and a couple of finished paintings to take home.

The Centre is a great space for a workshop (but can be used for many other functions as well, including yoga).

Lunch was very welcome!

We also found out about another new venture nearby.

After years of lying dormant and falling into disrepair the Old Miners Bath House in North Broomhill is getting life breathed into it once more.

The Old Bath House
(near Radar Close)
North Broomhill
Northumberland

The iconic red bricked building built in the late 50’s for miners and their families to shower in has been bought privately and is taking on a new lease of life. Artists are taking up residence in the building and the owner is keen to develop the site as an artists hub. Already a print-maker, sculptor, sign writer, carpenter and  glass artist have moved in.

Google The Old bath House for artists’ details.

August Home Workshop

The August workshop has finished. Four days of painting castles, boats and beaches. The weather was very changeable but the painters were able to paint outdoors some of the time.

The paintings were varied over the four days. These are Charlie’s versions but they were all excellent.

 

For the last lunch we had fish and chips (with mushy peas) from the local chippy. Delicious!!

Butterfly Studio

With Patchings over, Charlie was off to take a workshop in Terling at the Butterfly Studio in Flacks Green.

He packed the car

and set off. It was really hot so the painters (and Charlie) struggled.

But they soldiered on       

and this was the result.
