Alex's Workshops

Copse near Milburn, North Pennines
I run these popular workshops mainly at Langwathby Station Cafe in Langwathby, near Penrith. A highlight is always Janet's glorious food which is included in the price. - as is seeing the trains going by - which sometimes includes a steam engine!

Alex has over over 25 years' experience in teaching, tutoring and delivering workshops. The ones detailed below deliver experienced and friendly tuition, a wealth of creative ideas, superb food, and a beautiful location right next to the Settle Carlisle line in the “Brief Encounter” station cafe!
Each workshop is standalone - and will take you through a series of techniques, experiments and processes to inform and benefit your own work.
Some workshops are for complete beginners, others are for those will more experience. She specialises in gently encouraging experimentation, whilst ensuring you get a good grounding in techniques, alongside a thorough development of your own ideas.
