There will only be workshops in Acklington in May 2020 as Charlie will be busy on quite a few projects and paintings throughout the year.

These workshops will be based at the Village Hall in Charlie’s home village of Acklington, Northumberland.

Four days painting out on location with Charlie

Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th May or

Thursday 21st May and Friday 922nd May 2020


Of course, you could opt to come for the 4 days and have a day off in between!

The cost for 2 days is £150 with £60 paid as a non-returnable deposit to secure a place and the balance of £90 payable in March 2020.

Painting will be in watercolour.

Hopefully, the classes will be held outside “en plein air”, but we will have a room available in case of bad weather.

You will need to bring your own brushes as well as easels/chairs although we do have some to lend out. Paper, boards, buckets and paint will be provided.

Lunch and coffee and tea will also be provided.

There are many options for accommodation in the area from hotels to B&B.

To enquire about a place on one of the courses, please ring the office (01670 760 030, leave a message with your name and number if there is no-one in the office) or email to and we will get back to you.

We can accept most methods of payment.

In lieu of workshops, Charlie will be producing more downloads in the coming months which will be available through the e-shop at a cost of £5 each. Details will be posted on the website as they are completed.
