Mixed media in Anglesey with Sonia Hawes 2023


Easy to get to by road, train or ferry from Ireland, the unspoilt fertile island of Anglesey is protected by Ireland and the mountains of Wales to help it benefit from the warm airs of the Gulf Stream. Its marshes boast Bittens, its fields brim with Skylarks and its sheer cliff faces are nesting grounds for Auks, Razorbills, Guillemots and Peregrine Falcons. It has everything you need to be creatively inspired – vast coastal expanses, picturesque fishing villages, fascinating historical sites and captivating landscape.

During our week with Sonia, you will be sketching en Plein Air with pencils, pencils, charcoal and watercolour. Then during her tutorials, you will transform these images to produce informed work incorporating a mixture of paints, textiles and papers to recreate the essence of the Anglesey area.

A dedicated workspace will be at your disposal 24hrs a day during the week so work can continue evolving outside of tutorial sessions, giving you the opportunity and freedom to experiment with newly discovered techniques. Sonia will supply a materials list before the course and will bring some extra materials just in case you run out.

During the Plein Air outings, Sketch Trips provide a packed lunch if you are out all day, and they always work at a site not far from a cafe or loo. On tutorial or mixed sessions days, they provide a tasty varied buffet lunch. 

This course allows you to immerse yourself in your work and enjoy the luxury of being catered for by their amazing staff who provide x7 buffet-style breakfasts (a hot option is always available), x6 lunches (either freshly made rolls to individual specifications or a delicious buffet) and x7 two-course evening meals with wine. The chef uses local ingredients whenever possible and incorporates the culinary traditions of the area into the menus. The team can cater for all dietary requirements from coeliac, vegetarian, and vegan to unusual allergies

Your accommodation will be of a 4 or 5-star quality, and they do their very best to accommodate you in a bedroom which suits your needs. Their ensuite rooms book very quickly, so if having your own bathroom on holiday is important to you, don't delay, book now!
