Holidays and Courses


Holidays and Courses


x2 have been running holidays and short courses since 2004 and believe that creativity can blossom when feeling relaxed and inspired.


Beginners through to practising artists work alongside each other, in small groups.


The holidays are structured to suit individuals; personal direction and support is given by the two artist-tutors and there is opportunity for freedom in independent work. We can offer bespoke art courses and holidays to suit the needs of your group.

Wendy is offering individual mentoring on-line via zoom to support with any aspect of your work, at any stage, if you have come to a halt in awork or need help deciding how to finish. Please contact Wendy on:


“Great information before and during…….Lovely to receive the follow up reminders and tips…..”


“……immediately put me at ease. A nice way to meet the group.”
