Seascape Workshop, 8th and 9th of October 2016

Seascape Workshop. 8th and 9th of October 2016 


Location  CT5 4BP

The workshop has use of a chalet providing a base for refreshments, for group plenary sessions to share learning and achievements, and a haven in the event of poor weather. The chalet has a wood-burning stove, radiators, hot water,  toilet, bathroom, kitchen, large balcony, and views from several windows. We will also have additional covered marquee area in which to work.

Lunch and supper can be provided and brought to you at the chalet – menus will be emailed to you in advance if you have selected this option.


Refreshments and Meals

Hot and cold drinks and biscuits are provided. If you would like your lunch and supper brought to you at the chalet, we can send you menus in advance and arrange this for you. Alternatively there is space inside the chalet to eat or make your lunch, and a cafe close by: Poppet’s Cafe, (400 Faversham Road Seasalter CT5 4BW) and also the Michelin starred pub: The Sportsman



The terrain is pebbly and uneven, and the chalet, although one-storey, does have steps up from the beach so those with limited mobility would require extra help: please contact to discuss.



Day 1:

11.30  Arriving and refreshments at the Chalet!

12.30 -6pm-ish Painting, drawing and group plenary, with optional meals provided. If the sunset is good and you wish to continue working you are very welcome to stay longer.

Day 2:

12.30 – 6pm painting, sketching group plenary. Meals again can be provided.


Finding the Chalet:  CT5 4BP

Park alongside the verge as near as possible to the Sportsman Pub in Seasalter (not in their car-park) – there is usually plenty of parking along the road. Make your way to the beach over the sea wall and find the end chalet – easily identified by the marquee outside! I will provide a mobile contact number before the workshops for anyone in difficulties.
