How to paint a Giraffe


2021 in-person workshops will predominately be held in my studio in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire.

All materials are included: Paints, brushes and canvases!  You get to take home your giraffe too! ❤️

The day starts at 10am and runs through until 4:30pm.  A confirmation, venue details, what to expect and what to bring email will land in your email inbox 1 week before your booked session.

Throughout the day Sam demonstrates every stage and you follow along, you're also supported by various 1-2-1 sessions through the day too.  Most people who come on the workshop haven't painted since school and end up really chuffed with their characters at the end of the day.

Please be careful selecting your date as it is not always possible to accommodate requests to swap bookings.


The Live workshop day starts at 10:30 am and runs through until 3pm.  

ONLINE students will be sent joining instructions 1 week prior to the workshop:

The Live online workshop is designed to be an interactive painting day together but should you not be able to attend the LIVE you can always watch the pre-recorded learning videos that you automatically have access to.

You will need the following to take part:

🎨 Canvas, wood or canvas pad (any size you fancy)

🎨 Brushes (big 2 inch decorators brush, medium flat head brush and small detail brush)

🎨 Acrylic paint (any colours you like)

🎨 Access to a mobile, tablet or computer

In addition you my like to gather together, paper, kitchen roll, table cover, apron, wet wipes, chalk, hair-dryer, water container for brushes, a pallet to mix paints on (an old plate will do) and an easel (not essential).   On booking of this workshop you will have access to a free download of tips to get the best out of this workshop, links to recommended materials and some top tips for a great set-up.  Then near the workshop day I will email you links to our private Facebook group, and links to the pre-recorded videos too (so you can watch anytime).

If the date is greyed-out that means all places have sold out.
