Sue Mann paints outdoors in all seasons in oils, egg tempera and other media. She responds to the essence of the experience at one moment, transfixed by light, where wild meets tame.  For superior texture, she prepares her own paint by grinding pigment and leads workshops to encourage others to explore. She has shown in Wales, Cornwall, Norfolk, Chelsea and Hampstead, collecting prizes for her efforts in Plein Air competitions. Her collectors are in the UK and Italy.


Workshop for adults: Sat 6 July | 10am - 2pm
Workshop for children: Sat 13 July | 10am - 2pm
Please note that there will be a charge to participate in these workshops.

Both courses consist of information on the history and composition of paint, how to prepare the traditional gesso ground, hands-on experience grinding pigments and egg to prepare your palette in the morning.

In the afternoon you will have a chance to produce a painting on a supplied traditional gesso board.

Pigments include chalk, charcoal, beetroot, spices, seaweed and others.

Bring an apron, notebook and lunch. 

Sue Mann has a current DBS and is accustomed to leading workshops for all ages.
