Studio session with Jackie Hurwood

October 2021

An enticing view of Alfriston church nestling in a verdant Sussex landscape was the subject of our first watercolour tutorial of 2021. Professional artist Jackie Hurwood took us through a step by step approach, giving guidance about colour palette, brushes, materials and useful techniques for producing the painting from start to finish.

Studio session with Katharine Jennings

October 2021

Friday 1 October was a big day on our calendar because it marked our first studio session after an eighteen month break because of Covid restrictions. We were pleased to welcome local professional artist Katharine Jennings, who gave us a practical tutorial on portrait painting using the Zorn palette. The Zorn Palette is named after the late 19th Century Swedish artist, Anders Zorn. The palette consists of only four colours: Yellow Ochre, Ivory Black, Vermillion (or Cadmium Red) and titanium white. Surprisingly versatile and especially suited to portraits.

A big thank you to Gail & Andrew for allowing us to invade their lovely garden and art studio for our 2019 annual garden party at the beginning of July. The weather could not have been nicer and a good time was had by all.

All Saints Hall, Chapel Green - the venue for our annual exhibitions

We would like to thank everybody who attended and supported our annual exhibition and sale of work at All Saints Hall, Crowborough on 4 May 2019. Once again, this year's event was a great success with more than 140 framed paintings on show. It was very well attended with 14 paintings sold and dozens of the artists’ own cards. There were home made cakes for sale – all sold out – as well as second hand art books and art materials. We ran a café all day and so the atmosphere was very relaxed with people bringing their children or bumping into their friends and staying to enjoy what was on offer.

APRIL 2018


Here are a few photos taken during our April 2018 Exhibition at All Saints Hall, Crowborough.


Despite being held during the first hot, sunny weekend of 2018, the event was extremely well attended. Not only did we receive a lot of positive feedback from members of the public but the first painting sold in less than a minute after the doors opened. The home-baked cakes on sale in the cafe were popular too.
