Art in Aldeburgh

January 2021

We wish everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year.
For obvious reasons, we are not yet in a position to arrange our 2021 courses but we will be in touch as soon as we are able.
Our last year’s courses remained on our website to give a flavour of what lies ahead.

We are pleased to offer ten unique short courses run by six established artists working in a variety of ways. The courses are suitable for all abilities including beginners.

Art in Aldeburgh courses are held at Church Farm Studio, Victoria Road, Aldeburgh, IP15 5EA

The cost of each course includes refreshments and a light lunch with wine.
Each course is limited to six people so early booking is essential.

We have negotiated with the local hotels, that is the Wentworth, the White Lion and the Brudenal; all have agreed to give participants 10% off the cost of their stay if you let them know when booking that they are going on an Art in Aldeburgh course.

We have additional B&B accommodations on our list which may be helpful for some of you should you wish to stay in one of these locally. There may also be some self-catering options.

  • Thank you for another fabulous course with Ake – I came away with an incredible amount of work for such a short space of time,much of it work of a kind I didn’t even know I could do! But Ake’s super-encouraging and generous approach liberates me to have a go at anything without worrying about failure, which is often the biggest hurdle for students.
  • This has been an excellent two days – lovely studio Lesley and first class tuition Carole.

  • Excellent course and tutor which I have enjoyed.

  • It was a great workshop, well organised and friendly – a stroll to a nice restaurant in the High Street at lunchtime, the good luck to paint on the beach on a sunny day and, most important of all, an inspiring tutor who offered masses of encouragement and guidance. I shall certainly come back again.

  • Please keep doing these courses. I love them. Thank you so much.

  • Ake was so encouraging and has a lovely way with people. Helped build my confidence and gave me many ideas for future projects.

  • It could be impossible to improve on perfection – which the course was – would recommend them to anyone as long as they didn’t take my place.

  • I really enjoyed the weekend.
