Basic materials are provided but you’ll need to bring high quality watercolour blocks or tubes such as Winsor and Newton or St Petersburg White Nights. You may also bring your own brushes and paper.

Your tutor is Julia Borodina. Julia is a Russian-born Fine Artist, who has a passion for colour, loose painting technique and enjoys using impressionistic approaches within her work.
