    Wisteria Window in Line and Watercolour

    West Berkshire Villagers | Events | What’s On | Things to Do

    Using ink lines along with watercolour in a painting is a lovely technique as linework provides a structure to a picture while loose watercolour washes add vibrancy and colour. We will be painting the window of a French Chateau using waterproof pens first, to put down the main drawing and then painting loose colourful watercolour washes on top and finally putting in extra details in pen again at the end.

    What to bring:

    • Please bring along any watercolour equipment that you already have.

    • WATERCOLOUR PAINTS (either tubes or pans)

    • £75.00

    Herself

    West Berkshire Villagers | Events | What’s On | Things to Do

    Sandra (Clare Dunne), on the surface of it, is a young Mum struggling to provide her two young daughters with a warm, safe, happy home to grow up in.

    Beneath the surface, Sandra has a steely determination to change their lives for the better and when it becomes clear that the local council won’t provide that home, she decides to build it herself from scratch. With very little income to speak of and no savings, Sandra must use all her ingenuity to make her ambitious dream a reality.

    At the same time, she must escape the grip of her possessive ex-husband and keep him away from her and her girls. The lionhearted Sandra draws together a community of friends to support her and lend a helping hand and it is the kindness and generosity of these people and the love of her young daughters that help build her own strength and sense of self.

    With a cast that also includes Harriet Walter and Conleth Hill, Herself is the outstanding new film from Phyllida Lloyd, acclaimed director of The Iron Lady and Mamma Mia!

    This screening is on sale at reduced capacity with one seat left on either side of each booking.

    Priority booking opens to Members on Friday 10 September. Tickets are available for general sale on Friday 17 September at 10am.

    Following government announcements, we will be reopening on Monday 17th May. We have contacted all students who had booked onto rescheduled workshops, if you have booked and haven’t received the email then please check your junk. If you are booked to attend a workshop then you will be offered the opportunity to hold your place until it’s rescheduled or a refund. If you hold your place and cannot attend the new date then you will be offered a refund or the opportunity to book onto another workshop. If you have booked using a gift card, you will be offered the opportunity to hold your place until the new date is announced or a credit note.

    Over the first lockdown, we spent time implementing various measures to make our studio as safe as possible for our students and tutors.

    With just under 1000 sq ft of floor space, a new large demo area with a wall mounted monitor allows students to be socially distanced during tutor demonstrations and our ten work stations are now set further apart with more open flow areas in the centre of the studio.

    We have a central hands-free hand sanitising station which students and tutors use upon entry and throughout the day.

    We use our very own fogging system using anti-viral disinfectant (tested against Coronavirus) after every workshop.

    We are providing disposable cutlery at the tea and coffee station and paper hand towels for hand washing. We ask students to bring their own mugs and face masks.

    As far as the weather allows, the large patio doors onto the garden will be kept open and we will have tables and chairs for eating lunch outside.

    Students and tutors will be able to use our open plan kitchen/dining space and large conservatory to enjoy their lunch socially distanced and as the weather gets warmer we’ll have marquees erected in the grounds for students to use.

    We hope that these measures will reassure you that we have done as much as we can to ensure your safety when attending workshops.

    The Lost Leonardo

    A painting bought for $1175 becomes the most expensive artwork ever sold – and it may not even be by Leonardo da Vinci.

    The Lost Leonardo tells the inside story behind the Salvator Mundi, the most expensive painting ever sold at $450 million, claimed to be a long-lost masterpiece by Leonardo da Vinci. From the moment it is purchased from a shady New Orleans auction house, and its buyers discover masterful brushstrokes beneath its cheap restoration, the fate of the Salvator Mundi is driven by an insatiable quest for fame, money and power.

    But as its price soars, so do questions about its authenticity. Is this multi-million dollar painting actually by Leonardo – or do certain power players simply want it to be? Unravelling the hidden agendas of the world’s richest men and most powerful art institutions, The Lost Leonardo reveals how vested interests became all-important, and the truth secondary.
