Come on in through the revolving door and paint here with Sandra!

Sometimes at this time of year Watermill bookings feel like a revolving door: people come in, but the occasional one or two go out! We’re pretty full this year with all the bookings coming in, but we invariable have a few cancellations, usually for legitimate medical reasons. We quite understand, but want to encourage a few more of you to come in through that door!

This has been the case with our lovely early Summer ‘tutor in residence’ Sandra Strohschein, who will be with use for four weeks in May and June.

Due to cancellations, we now have the Brunelleschi bedroom free for Sandra’s week from Saturday 2 June to Saturday 9 June and The Lippi Suite and the Uccello bedroom free for Sandra’s week from Saturday 9 June to Saturday 16 June.

So why not take a spin through our revolving door and come and join us at the Watermill? We’d love to welcome you here.

Sandra says:  The Watermill is one of my favourite place to paint and the hospitality is out of this world. “I’ve made so many great friends there over the years and I am looking forward to meeting many of them again as well as making new friends during our painting weeks.

We had a wonderful course with Sandra last year and our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves. A couple of their comments: “Sandra was full of enthusiasm and talent and made every day a joy.  To have two chances most days to paint was utter heaven and in such wonderful surroundings. I didn’t paint a masterpiece but thoroughly enjoyed my week.  I hope to remember some of the tricks Sandy taught us and use them in the future.”

 “Many thanks to you both for a fabulous week. Your forethought, hard work and professionalism are very much appreciated. Nothing was too much trouble and nothing was at fault. You have created a gem. Please pass on our sincere gratitude to all your lovely people.”

Sandra Strohschein, from Michigan, USA, has achieved an extraordinary mastery of her medium, transparent watercolours. She works in a fast loose impressionistic style, but above all, she produces passionate, emotionally charged paintings, full of energy.

As for her teaching, people frequently tell her about how much fun they have on her workshops and how nobody ever wants them to end. Another painting guest on her course at the mill said: “Watching your demonstrations was such an education and your kind and patient individual help was invaluable.”
