Inspired painting holidays: Northumberland courses and workshops are held in the Byre studio, near Hexham, Northumberland. Teaching ratios are normally kept to 1 to 7 or less. The studios are spacious with generous seating area and workspaces for all participants.

Northumberland - The Byre studio is situated at No 3 Ochrelands Courtyard, Hexham NE46 1SB. Ochrelands is a group of former farm buildings in the countryside, 1 mile south of the historic market town of Hexham.

Workshops make use of the studio, the surrounding landscape and local gardens. The private garden of Ochrelands House next door to the studio opens periodically for the National Gardens Scheme or other charities. Some workshops use the grounds of Ochrelands garden for inspiration, sketching practice or more extended painting sessions.

Surrounding area: the Northumberland studio is close to the Northumberland National Park and the North Pennines, Hadrian's Wall and Roman sites of Chesters and Corstopitum, Hexham with its historic Abbey, marketplace and gaol, and National Trust properties at Wallington and Gibside.

Also in Northumbria are the Cathedral city of Durham, the Northumberland coast, the holy island of Lindisfarne and Alnwick castle and garden, while a day trip across the Pennines takes you to the beautiful Lake District National Park.
