Julie Herring started studying art in her mid-twenties, originally in Natural History Illustration, then Fine Art painting and later achieving a Masters of Art in Museum Studies (which included ‘Collections Management’). She also studied City & Guilds in Silver-smithing and Jewellery Design, Ceramics and Ceramic Design and Printmaking.
From Furzebrook Studios she runs a series of adult drawing and painting courses, teaching and encouraging observational drawing skills inspired by nature. Her airy and light studio setting is ideal for indoor classes and the surrounding countryside enables outdoor drawing, with beautiful walks just on the doorstep.
Julie also uses her personal collection of handcrafted art and craft in her classes, focusing on forms, designs and patterns in nature. Her art collection includes studio pottery, glass, paintings, printmaking, natural jewellery and decorative arts.
The courses are small and friendly, a healthy activity that is also sociable and enjoyable for all (adult) ages and abilities.
