Old Workshops

Due to Covid-19, the following arrangements are suspended. 

Whether you are looking for an intensive session learning about basic techniques which will inform your elementary knowledge or to build on your skills with more advanced techniques with one of Scotland’s top watercolour artists, I now offer 1-to-1 or 1-to-2 workshops at my home in Edinburgh. 10am-4pm, watercolour paper is provided as well as the use of a selection of watercolours. Coffee, tea, refreshments and lunch at the local café are also included.

  • £500 for 1 day or £900 for 2 days for 1 student
  • £450 per person for 1 day when 2 students attend together (maximum 2 due to space constraints) or £800 for 2 days per student. Please fill in the form at the bottom of this page for more information.

‘The work of Jenny Matthews shows, just as Elizabeth Blackadder’s does, that painting flowers need not
be merely botany; that in the right hands inspiration and poetry are completely compatible with precise observation and
understanding of the distinctive characters of flowers and plants’. The Scotsman, 10 September 2016. Duncan Macmillan

‘Technically….Matthews is brilliant’. The Times, 2017, Giles Sutherland.

If you are interested in a watercolour session in your own home with Jenny, please get in touch by filling in the form at the bottom of this page. A 2-hour session costs £200, (cost may vary depending on your location).
