New members are always welcome to join this group of artists who meet on Tuesday mornings at Halton Mill just outside Lancaster; see the poster opposite. I provide tuition in a variety of media every other week. Please contact Maggie Inkster for more information:

About my classes

I teach a variety of different artistic media and techniques, with a strong focus on improving basic skills in figurative drawing and painting. My workshops are friendly, relaxed and open to people at any stage or ability (although some are tailored to suit certain levels of experience).
My workshops are normally held in the Garstang and Lancaster area of NW England. Please contact me if you wish to join my mailing list and I will keep you informed of any future workshops or events.

You can see some photos from my classes in the gallery below.


“Expert tuition in a small, friendly, supportive group.”
” I’ve re-learned how to paint and draw and I’ve had the chance to try different media and experimented  with different techniques and styles.   It’s been huge fun and I’m looking forward to learning more and more.”
“The thing I love most is the freedom you get to experiment with new techniques and materials.
I never would have made some of my favourite pieces if I had been working on my own.  Each class is just so absorbing, I leave each week with my head full of new ideas to try next time!”
“The course gave me not only the refresher I hoped for, but also some new ideas, perspectives and skills. It was well structured and educational with some good supporting materials we could take away with us, and it gave me the confidence to engage with drawing again. Janet was fantastic – really encouraging and friendly, relaxed and knowledgeable.”
