Covid-19 update

Following the government update, 22 February, we should be able to offer art holidays again from 17 May, in line with the government Covid exit roadmap.  

If a course is advertised as fully booked, it’s worth speaking to us so we can put you on the reserve list should a cancellation happen.

These are the art holidays and courses we have lined up at Shorland Old Farm for 2021.  Click on the course title for more information about that particular tutor or course.

All holidays and courses for 2021 are inclusive of accommodation, meals (breakfast, lunch, 2-course dinner with coffee after), and tuition.  Tea & coffee are available all day in the studio.

Tutored courses are led by professional artists, and are suitable for all abilities, unless otherwise stated.

If you would like to see next year’s courses as soon as they are finalised, visit our Stay in Touch page and follow the link to join our mailings list.  Once signed up, you will also be first to hear about any cancellations on courses that are fully booked.
