Why BOOK an acrylic pouring lesson with me?

  • I'm an AWARD-WINNING professional paint pourer, developing techniques for the past 5 years. My work is exhibited in fine art galleries, I've shown in Rome & New York, in public buildings and museums and have work in collections all over the world. I am also a QUALIFIED EDUCATOR with 15+ years experience.  This places me in a unique position, unlike any other fluid artist presently working in the UK.   I have extensive knowledge of the techniques and a working knowledge of all the latest developments. Crucially, I know HOW to share my knowledge with my students and help them achieve the RESULTS they're looking for as quickly as possible, regardless of their learning style or present ability level.

  • I actively encourage students to find their own voice and develop their unique style as quickly as possible - something which can't be learned from a YouTube video.

  • Many students book repeat lessons with me as their own paint pouring journeys progress, and have awarded me 5* reviews on Facebook and Google.

  • I don't run "cookie-cutter", formulaic "paint-along" classes. Every single lesson is unique and tailor-made for each student and is designed after a discussion with you. 

  • All classes are held in a dedicated workshop/studio space with ALL safety equipment  (including comfortable COVID-19 face shields, hand sanitiser etc.) and materials are provided. There is also a lot of supporting documentation to help you once your lesson is finished and a private Facebook group for on-going support.

  • There is a huge amount of conflicting information about acrylic pouring on the internet, which is both overwhelming and confusing, particularly for beginners.  I have spent thousands of pounds and hundreds of studio hours researching products, developing my own and nailing the techniques, to save you TIME, MONEY and FRUSTRATION .  The products I use and recommend WORK, simples. 

  • My private paint pour lessons are proving extremely popular and there is always a 4-6 week waitlist. However, I sometimes have postponed classes, so if you can attend a class with just a few days notice it may be possible to fit you in quicker! I will contact you within 48 hours of booking so we can arrange a mutually convenient date and time for your class and to allow me to get an overview of exactly what your present skill level is and what you are hoping to achieve during our time together.

  • As well as the testimonials from students on this page you can read about the progress of my students and see some of their "before & after" pics as a result of participating in my online paint pouring course.  You will progress even faster as a private student:)

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR LESSON?

 

  1. 1:1 personal art tuition for individuals (or 2 people who are either complete beginners OR at a similar ability level ) in blocks of either 3 hours or 6 hours to be held at various dates throughout 2020.  These dates will be arranged at a mutually convenient date and time following booking (I will contact you within 48 hours).  

  2. Demonstrations by me of each of the techniques covered, followed by a fully-supported practical session/s.

  3. Between 3-7 paintings for you to collect/have posted at a later date (depending on class duration selected)

  4. EVERYTHING needed for your lesson, including safety equipment, tools, materials, supporting documentation, refreshments and a light lunch for the 6 hour option (due to COVID I'm presently asking attendees to bring their own lunches).  All you need to do is turn up in old clothes with a notebook!

  5. An example of a bespoke workshop with me might include:​

  • ALL the basics if you have never poured before

  • specific techniques e.g Dutch pour, swipe, string pull, dips, ring pours, flip cup, etc.

  • combining techniques for stunning results

  • choosing the right safety equipment

  • sourcing products

  • support with individual pouring challenges a student is facing

  • experimenting with new mediums

  • finding your own unique style

  • trouble-shooting

  • learning a new technique/techniques

  • how to finish off your work appropriately to protect it from dirt and UV light

  • how to display your work etc.

*If you are buying private tuition as a gift - a physical voucher with full details will be shipped to you OR the gift recipient upon request.

  1. Paint-pouring is MESSY - you will need to wear CLOTHING and FOOTWEAR that you're not bothered about getting paint on - as it DOESN'T wash out😏

  2. It's actually a bit of a myth that you need loads of space to do fluid art.  I started off on a tiny kitchen table and I'll be showing you exactly HOW to pour with very limited space. 

  3. There will be an opportunity to purchase some of the paints and mediums we will be using in the workshop for you to use at home.  I use particular mediums for different effects and some of them aren't easy to get hold of in the UK.  I also buy in bulk and at wholesale prices whenever I can - so I'm happy to pass on some of that discount on to you.  

  4. Unfortunately, due to the nature of fluid art - pieces usually have to left in-situ for at least 7-10 days to dry before they can be moved safely.  You will therefore need to make arrangements to collect/ship any work produced at a later date.

  5. Bring something to take notes - students always take LOTS of notes:)

  6. Due to the nature of the materials and equipment used - OVER 18's only!

Making a Weekend of It...

I'm based in a beautiful part of the country on the border with Wales in the Forest of Dean, with good access to motorways and market towns (Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth) and big cities Gloucester and Cheltenham.  The nearest train station to me is Lydney or Gloucester.

There are PLENTY of places to stay, great walking and lots of tourist attractions.  Check out Air B n'B or alternatively if you fancy a bit of camping (old skool OR "clamping pods") I can recommend Greenway Farm Campsite.  It's 5 mins by car from the studio, has excellent facilities (including a great cafe) and lots of fantastic reviews.

If you're planning a trip with your other half and they don't want to attend the workshop - they definitely won't be bored.
