Workshop Holiday 2023

Instead of another Residential Holiday this year, our regulars have requested a return to a week of watercolour workshops at our local Village Hall in Acklington. It’s actually 4 days in two blocks of two. So you can either paint for four days with a day off in the middle or just come for two days. Lunch is provided but you arrange your own accommodation. There are many choices in the area, it has become quite the tourist place. We blame “Vera” and the Sunday Times lists of “hidden treasures”!

The dates are Monday/Tuesday 14th and 15th August and/or Thursday/Friday 17th and 18th August 2023.

Sorry, 14th/15th August is full.

And 17th/18th August also full.

Cost is £200 for 2 days, £400 for 4 days.

A non-returnable deposit of £50/100 is required to make a booking. Contact Gail on 01670 760 030 (leave a message if I’m out of the office) or send an enquiry to

You will need to bring your own painting kit: brushes, paints, paper, pencil  etc.

We will have our shop available for art materials and books at greatly reduced prices.


Acklington is a quiet village just a few miles from the beautiful unspoilt Northumberland coast. It’s 3 miles from the traditional harbour town of Amble and the picturesque village of Warkworth with its ancient castle and river setting. Acklington Village Hall is located at the western end of Acklington village, on the main through road, the B6345. It is only about 50 m from the lovely old church, St John the Divine, on the other side of the road. It has a small tarmac area at the front which can hold up to 8 cars but there is also unrestricted on-street parking on both sides.
