FAQs

Where are the sessions held?
All of my classes are held in my home studio in Headington, Oxford. In my studio I provide an informal and relaxed atmosphere, in a cozy space with a garden view.  I have aimed to recreate the feel of the art room at school – somewhere to escape for a while and to be inspired by the colourful artwork that surrounds you.  (Please note that my studio is on the first floor up a flight of stairs).

How many people will be in a class?
My classes take up to 6 people.

What should I wear to a class?
We will be getting messy with art materials – most will wash out but acrylic paint will not come off your clothes.  I will provide aprons but you might also what to think about wearing something that you can roll the sleeves up on, or that you don’t mind if you get paint on.

Getting your work home after a class
With a lot of the classes, your work will be wet at the end of the session, so it will need to dry before you can take it home.  I ask that you arrange a time with me to come and collect this within 2 weeks of the class, or alternatively I can post this to you for £5.  If you would prefer this option, please either include this in your online payment, or you can pay in cash on the day.

What happens if I need to cancel my place?
For my 1/2 day classes I can offer a full refund or change of date of your class up to 1 week in advance of the class.  With less than 1 weeks notice I am unable to offer a refund.  For my full day classes and evening courses, a non-refundable deposit is required to book your place.

Getting here by bus
From the centre of town, there are quite a few buses you can get up to Headington Shops, and it is then an 8 minute walk to my house.  You can get the following buses:  8, 9, 280, U1 or the 800.

Getting here by train
From the train station in central Oxford, you can either get a taxi, which would take about 15 minutes if the traffic is good, and would cost about £10 / £15.  Or you can get the 280 bus, which stops in the main bus depot at the station, which runs about every 20 minutes.

Parking
Although the parking directly outside my house is permit holders only, there is free parking a bit further along the street from me, and along Margaret Road as well.
