Potrait workshop results!

Portrait workshop results!

I conduct 1-day workshops in the Colchester area covering a mainly traditional approach to portraiture and figures (including animals), working in graphite, charcoal and pastels. I am willing to work outside the area, subject to the charges detailed below.  You can find details of some of my courses in Colchester at Tindall’s here.

If you are interested in my visiting your organisation or club for demonstrations, workshops or community projects, please read on for details of what I can offer you, how to book and prices.  I can also provide personal tuition, if preferred.


Examples are:

Portraits In Graphite
Animal Portraits In Pastels
Charcoal Portraits On Toned Paper

Essentials Of Drawing
Basic Portraiture


Other courses in related areas are possible. I am open to suggestions!

Here are my rates for 2015 and by looking at the options below you should be able to accurately estimate how much it will cost:

£35 per hour for 3 hours or less OR
£25 per hour for 4 hours or longer
Plus my materials (this is only a small amount, generally no more than £10)
Optional: Any student materials supplied by myself at cost.

Plus 50 pence per mile petrol/vehicle wear, as estimated by google maps. No petrol charge for my home town (Colchester, Essex) and up to 5 miles outside it.

Notes about calculating times:

Please add one hour to the length of the workshop, to include half an hour set up and clear up times at the beginning and end. Any breaks or lunchtimes are included in the time, as I cannot usefully use this time for other work, but I am always happy to chat to the participants during this time and answer informal questions.
