Sketching and painting in Herefordshire with Sonia Hawes
Herefordshire is an overlooked gem of the English countryside, and in our week with Sonia Hawes, we will be sketching and painting in the towns and countryside around Hereford, Ross and Hay on Wye.
Hereford is a beautiful riverside city with historic architecture and traffic-free charming small lanes. The Cathedral dominates the city and is worth a visit if not just to admire its magnificence and see the Mappa Mundi which is housed in the museum.
The nearby town of Hay-on-Wye, often known as ‘the town of Books’, famous for its specialist book shops and antique centres, will be on our list of places to sketch. As will Ross on Wye and ‘Godric’s Castle’ which both line the river Wye and nestle in the picturesque valley which features Symonds Yat.
The week will be made up of group tutorials with Sonia at our base, plus one to one guidance while out and about sketching and painting in the most beautiful locations the Herefordshire has to offer.
During the week we will indulge in some of the local specialities of the region, including the famous Hereford Beef. Two-course evening meals with wine, breakfasts and six lunches (either, packed or buffet depending on our location) are also included in the price.
