Delighted to announce that palette knife workshops will be resuming this autumn, following Government COVID guidelines.   Confirmed dates are:-

23rd October 2021 – Sunflowers – fully booked

11th December 2021 – fully booked

All workshops are subject to numbers and Covid guidelines.   A full refund will be issued immediately, if workshops have to be cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.

In all of my painting workshops, you will enjoy the fun, relaxed atmosphere, with lots of one-on-one time with me and plenty of demonstrations and hands-on help.

The price of the art workshop is €135.

All materials are supplied (including canvas and oil paints), lunch and refreshments included.

Come and join me for the day in the Loft Room – Skerries Mills, Skerries, County Dublin.   Enjoy refreshments and choose your lunch from the menu at the Watermill Restaurant.   No experience is necessary to attend a workshop and each student leaves with a finished painting and has a great day out.

Workshops are held on Saturdays or Sundays from 10.30 a.m. to 4 p.m. No need to bring anything as everything is provided. Just wear old clothes or an apron to protect your clothes. Workshops are restricted to 12 people, so book early.

Please note that there are two flights of stairs up to the Loft Room and this may cause difficulties for anyone with mobility issues.

Would highly recommend Karen’s one day workshop for those looking for a uniquely enjoyable day out exploring your creative side, whether new or old to art. Myself and my mother-in-law thoroughly enjoyed learning to paint daisies with a pallet knife, singing along to epic tunes in a warm and welcoming environment. It was fun seeing each person’s unique painting at the end of the class. Karen provided excellent tuition, very patient, with hands-on step by step instructions, in her beautiful studio in Skerries Mills. The studio itself is wonderful to explore with her fabulous artwork and distinctive style paintings.

If you love painting or want to give it a go I would highly recommend Karen’s class. I attended a one-day seascape workshop working with a palette knife. It was my first time using oils – Karen managed different levels of ability and everyone left with a beautiful painting. Such a relaxed day and a really lovely lunch as well. I’ll be back again

Great fun atmosphere in class very relaxed and no pressure. Karen is very encouraging and helpful. I’ll be back!
