    14th - 15th September 2019 - Watercolour Workshop in Hartington

    Come sketching and painting with Peter Woolley in the spectacular Peak District location of Hartington.

    The workshop will explore the process of painting watercolour landscapes in some depth. From preliminary drawing techniques to good composition and general working practice, the aim is to select techniques appropriate to the location and work on improving awareness and application of those techniques in a friendly and informal setting.

    All abilities, from total beginner upwards, are welcome.

    16th - 31st October 2019: Cruise Workshops aboard MV Columbus

    Peter will be running workshops on the Cruise & Maritime Voyages ship MV Columbus, travelling to the Canary Islands.

    It's the first time he'll have worked on this ship, CMV's newest acquisition, so he's looking forward to comparing it to the others in the fleet. He'll be checking out the volcanoes of Lanzarote and climbing the Rock of Gibraltar... weather permitting, of course. It's also being advertised as a themed cruise, with stars from London's West End performing 'Legends of the Musicals', alongside Claire Sweeney.

    He'll be keeping a daily blog of the voyage, and all that happens, as it happens (icebergs, sinkings, mutinies - everything), so if you fancy keeping up-to-date with the voyage, or checking out his TV interview, Click Here.
