Art gifts…coming soon!

Although I’ve had to temporarily pause on workshops (building work continues, loudly!), I’m currently busy putting together a range of art gifts. If you know someone who might love a beautifully presented box of art supplies, hints, tips on techniques and handmade examples this Christmas, watch this space!

I’ll also be selling boxed, mounted and framed prints in time for Christmas.

If you’d like further details in the meantime, please email me: hello@suzannepink.co.uk

Autumn Illustration Workshops: Book Now!

*Limited spaces now available on some sessions…see below for details and please do get in touch to check availability*

To book a space on any session:
Email: hello@suzannepink.co.uk
Phone: 07779 108 563

My autumn programme is now confirmed! All of the workshops are held in SE19, in my informal, relaxed kitchen studio setting. All materials are included in the session price.
After half term, we’ve got some building work coming up, so I currently haven’t been able to plan sessions from mid October onwards.

The number of places for each session is limited, so early booking is highly recommended, as sessions can become fully booked very quickly.

NB Due to quite a few last minute cancellations, I’ve reluctantly introduced a 48 hour cancellation policy to allow me to plan and offer spaces to those on the waiting list. Any cancellations less than 48 hours before the session will require full payment of the session fee. Thank you for your continued support!
