Springfield Arts is a venue for hosting art workshops, in which professional and amateur artists can teach and learn in an inspirational setting. We believe in using nature as a basis for art, therefore all our courses are picked to reflect this ethos. Previous courses include eco-printing, which used natural dyes and plants to create fabric with imprinted patterns, and cold wax painting which is a technique that creates fabulous abstract landscapes.
Springfield is a special venue for teaching art techniques as it is surrounded by breathtaking landscapes and taught from a home-built studio made from recycled windows, wood and pallets. The classes are created as an intimate learning experience, with small classes of a maximum of 8, you will meet like-minded artists looking to learn new or further their skills with scope for one-to-one help from talented tutors. Delicious home cooked food and cakes are provided on the courses to satisfy every eater.
Our studio has a raw, rustic feel to it, from its recycled windows, OSB wood and little quirks like a washing machine window. The studio has running water, electricity and an outdoor compost loo.
Why come to a workshop at Springfield?
We have always believed that our home offers an extraordinary sense of peace and a space for reflection. The rolling landscapes surround you in hills and valleys, which mean that it is near impossible to come here and not be inspired. We are now in our third year of running courses, and we have been overwhelmed by the positive response we have had from the previous attendees of courses.
Springfield hosts one of a kind workshops which have proven to inspire and relax everyone who is a part of it. By keeping the groups small, the attendees have formed great friendships and continue to support each others work post-course. It has also meant that every attendee will get personal time with the tutor, meaning you will go home with artwork and advice you feel truly satisfied with.
Fi's delicious home cooked quiches, salads and baking throughout the day have been the perfect accompaniment for creating a warm environment. All needs are catered to at Springfield - you will never forget a weekend with one of our artists.
