Art Workshop in the Garden

By Uncategorized

Sketching & Painting at TeassesSunday 1st March 2020 10am-4pmFor adults at any level of experience.

Join local artist, Steve Bretel, for an exciting and sociable creative learning experience. The grand aspects of Teasses Castle – set amidst glorious, extensive formal gardens and woodland – provide the perfect settings and scope for creative expression. We’ll start by freestyle sketching with graphite and charcoal to loosen up our mark making, then move on to using watercolour, and mixed media for painting. Don’t worry if you lack creative confidence – this will be supportive and fun through a mixture of demonstrations, instruction and positive feedback. Those more experienced may wish to focus on accurate observation skills, composition, perspective, tonal range, and effective use of colour. £60 for the day – all creative equipment supplied – drawing and painting materials, papers, easels and boards – but bring your own favoured things if you’d like to use them. Teas and coffees etc., will be on hand, but you’ll need to bring a packed lunch, as this is not provided.

Please come dressed appropriately for the weather conditions, as we’ll be out in the elements for periods of time. If the weather is inclement on the day, we’ll work in the newly rebuilt extensive greenhouse, with its panoramic view of the gardens and wide array of exotic plants to use as subject matter, or from gathered natural materials found nearby. Please note, this will likely be an active day with changing levels of terrain and steps to negotiate.

Purdey Award Winners 2019

By Game

The Purdey Awards were set up in 1999 to celebrate outstanding game and habitat management in order to encourage good practice across the country sporting industry.

Our Head Gamekeeper, Kenny and his team have restored the landscape at Teasses since 1996 and have managed the restoration and re-introduction of natural habitat to Teasses. This has involved the planting of miles of mixed hedging, establishment of diverse deciduous and evergreen mixed woodland, the digging-out of a loch, ponds and waterways and the encouragement of native fauna and flora, wet-meadows, organic pasture and sensitive introduction of game species to support our country sporting enterprises.

We all know how much passion, sweat and tears Kenny and his team have put into the restoration of Teasses and now it has all been recognised by the receipt of a Purdey Award at a glamorous event in London.

Congratulations Kenny, Jordan and everyone who has helped along the way a much deserved award!
