The memories linger on

The Watermill at Posara for painting, creative writing, knitting, and Italian language holidays/vacations/workshops, Tuscany, Italy.

Following the reminiscences of Kyla Wahlstrom, who was our guest on Sandra Strohschein’s wonderful watercolour painting week here in June last year (she sent us lots of pictures which you can see in a Facebook slideshows by clicking here), some of her fellow guests have also been in touch with fond memories of their week with us 2019.

One of them, Shirley Coles, writes: “Thank you, Kyla, for the lovely memories and the wonderful photos. It was certainly a great week and one that I will always remember – Sandra’s inspired teaching, Lois and Bill’s hospitality, the beautiful Watermill and the Tuscan countryside, all of you fellow guests and the painting too.

“I was due to be returning there next Saturday, now deferred until next year. I have taken part in the workshops that Lois and Bill have arranged via Zoom with Mike Willdridge. Although Zoom has its limitations the online session was enjoyable and also brought back loads of memories of the Watermill.”

Sandra sent us a montage of some of the latest pictures she has produced, several with a distinctively Italian flavour. You can see it at the top.

Another guest on Sandra’s course, Becky Higson, has also been following Mike Willdridge’s online interactive painting sessions. (You can learn more about the next one by clicking here.) This is Becky’s attempt at the sun- filled doorway, the subject of the last session.

Becky says: “I really need to spend more time on painting, it puts me in such a good frame of mind!!

“I’d much rather we all be collectively enjoying the shared experience of the Watermill right now as opposed to a global pandemic!”

Thank you for those kind words, ladies. We hope to be running our creative courses at the Watermill again from this August onwards. And we have a full programme for 2021. You can find more about everything by clicking here.
