The final summer arts course at Gayle Mill will take place on Saturday 13th September. Originally intended to be held over a weekend, Susan Neale’s “Watercolours for All” course will now be concentrated into a single day, starting at 9.30am.
The course is open to anyone, whatever their skill level, and is focusing on the theme of “buildings and water”, particularly the movement of water and reflected light. Gayle Mill, which opened at Easter after 4 years of conservation and restoration work, is the perfect venue for watercolour painting.
From the light and airy upper floor, participants will have a unique position from which to capture the essence of the Wensleydale landscape, using the combination of the traditional Dales architecture of Gayle village, the lively, tumbling Gayle Beck, the ever-changing skies and the industrial heritage of the Mill itself.
Susan Neale is a well-known watercolour artist based at Stillington in the Vale of York, and has been a qualified painting teacher for many years. She runs courses regularly in North Yorkshire, and has also taught painting holidays on the continent.
There are a number of places still available, at a cost of £50 per person, including a delicious buffet lunch and hot and cold drinks throughout the day. Bring your own paints and brushes; watercolour paper is provided. For further information and to book a place, telephone Gayle Mill on 01969 667320.
