About the Tutors

Selecting workshop tutors who are passionate about teaching is the key to providing artists with valuable and enjoyable events. We choose artists who are known internationally as being some of the best in their medium - artists like Eugen Chisnicean, Olivia Quintin, Janine Gallizia and David Poxon RI.

"I seek out artists whose workshops are in demand internationally,  and whose work I admire. Finally, I ask myself whether I would be happy to invest time learning from this person.
These are our workshop tutors."
