Workshops - UK

Sawley, North Yorkshire pencil drawing workshop, 2007
UK locations for 2017

As well as running workshops in my North Yorkshire studio, I also try to run a few elsewhere in the country each year.

I'm looking for a co-organiser and a suitable venue in any other part of the country (or even near a past venue). If you think you could assist with finding a suitable venue in your area and, with my assistance, find about 20 people wishing to attend, you'll receive a free workshop — currently worth up to £195.00. If you are interested, please read the details below:



Workshops - USA & CANADA

Goshen, Indiana drawing workshop, August 2009
USA and CANADA locations for 2015/2016

We took a short break from travelling to the US and Canada in 2015, but I'm always interested to hear from potential co-organisers. I'd welcome any suggestions you may have. If you think you could help find a suitable venue in your area and, with my assistance, find about 20 people wishing to attend, you'll receive a free workshop — currently worth up to £330.00. If you are interested in assisting me to set up a workshop in your area, please read the details below:



Workshops - AUSTRALIA

Drawing Workshop group
Melbourne and other workshops
I am currently considering a trip to Australia, although interest is not yet sufficient to make a trip viable. I plan to visit as many locations to hold workshops as I can during our stay, and I'm looking for suitable venues and co-organisers. More than one workshop may be held in the Melbourne area but I need suggestions for other locations too.

If you think you could help find a suitable venue in your area and, with my assistance, at least 20 people wishing to attend, you'll receive a free workshop — currently worth up to £330.00. If you are interested in assisting me to set up a workshop in your area, please read the details below:





Co-Organiser details

The requirements are quite simple: a suitable venue, about 20 attendees, and a base to which I can ship supplies (workshop packs, pre-prepared line drawing etc — you could fit the whole lot into a suitcase!).

The venue need not be any art-related place. I often use a village hall here in the UK that has good light, a kitchen, plentiful parking, disabled access and toilets, and sufficient tables and chairs. A church hall or community hall would do too, or a hotel with a conference room (hotels are our preference and have worked very well for us).

Workshops would be 3-day and run from 10am - 5pm.

I need about 20 (maximum 24) attendees to make the workshop viable. Maybe you belong to a local art group and know of other groups you can approach? Would your local newspaper be interested in running an editorial piece on the event? This local knowledge is invaluable - you know things I cannot possibly find out from here.

I'm not expecting anyone to have to spend money - if, for example, posters or flyers are required for display in local art stores, I'll arrange that from here or pay for you to do it locally. I'll give all the support you need, such as circulating the workshop through my mailing lists, advertising on my websites and blog, paying venue deposits and so on. I will also advertise the workshop on other websites, such as the SAA website where I'm a Professional Associate, which has quite a few American and other foreign members, and on my own Starving-Artists site and at TheDrawingForum.com (both of which have an international membership). In brief, I'll do everything I can to attract attendees and help in all other respects too.

If you're interested, please to register your interest.
