I have been tutoring a variety of Canal Art courses for over twenty five years. These started with an evening class in Brentwood, Essex and I was then asked to take over occasional  courses at Knuston Hall College, Wellingborough. I have also taught at the ‘Ragged School Museum’, Mile End; Adult Education classes in Harlow, Upminster, the Old Kent Road and Field Study Centre at Flatford Mill. These courses vary in length from one day introductory sessions to weekends and occasionally run to three day courses. The courses include a variety of Rose, Daisy and Castle Pictures with contemporary designs, using the similar techniques.


Canal Art Courses and Dates

Childerditch, Brentwood, Essex.

Brentwood has been the location for Canal Art courses for over thirty years when they started at the Adult Centre as an Evening Class. This one day courses are located at Little Warley Village Hall overlooking common land on the edge of Brentwood. At present there are no new dates booked due to COVID restrictions..

Bicknacre, Chelmsford, Essex.

Bicknacre is a fairly new location for one days courses and prior to ‘lock-down’ the courses that were advertised became fully book very quickly. The location is in the village hall which is attached to the local Primary School which is next the Priory Fields. Priory Fields hold a secret of an arch that is the one remaining part of an old priory. At present there are no new dates booked due to COVID restrictions.
