If you are interested, please email her with your name, postal address, email address and phone number, so that she can place you on her mailing list for future workshops.
WORKSHOPS FOR ART SOCIETIES:-
GILLI CHARGES £20 PER HOUR PLUS TRAVELLING EXPENSES AND COVERS THE HERTFORDSHIRE/BEDFORDSHIRE AREA, SHE RECOMMENDS AT LEAST TWO & HALF HOURS FOR FIRST INTRODUCTORY WORKSHOP. TO PRODUCE A COMPLETE PAINTING 5 HOURS IS RECOMMENDED (WHICH WOULD COST IN THE REGION OF £140 IN TOTAL). SHE HAS TAUGHT CLASSES OF 20 - 25 STUDENTS, SO THIS COULD SPREAD OUT THE COST QUITE CONSIDERABLY. SHE WOULDN'T RECOMMEND WORKSHOPS WITH MORE STUDENTS THAN THAT.
