SUMMARY OF COURSES by Peter Weatherill and courses and teaching by other artists
KNUSTON HALL, Wellingborough, Northamptonshire is a residential Adult Education College run by Northamptonshire County Council and is one of the few remaining residential colleges of its type in the UK. Peter Weatherill has been teaching Coloured Pencil courses there for over 10 years and the courses appear on the listings for the College in March and September for Coloured pencil ( both Wax and Watercolour pencils . The Coloured Pencil courses by Peter Weatherill have been weekend courses for many years with a basic day on the Friday followed by two days of general coloured pencil tuition over the Saturday and Sunday, with pupils working on pictures of their own choice. This has worked well, and many students have been coming regularly for years to enjoy a social and art weekend. Three days of 12 hours is a bit heavy for the tutor, though, and in my 80th year I decided to cut down the hours that I teach. I have agreed with Knuston to change over to running three single day courses mid week in the Spring and Autumn of 2019 which give tuition up to 4-30pm. Whilst Formal tuition will run from 9-15am to 4.30pm, Students booking through the three days with accommodation will have an evening meal and the opportunity to use the College facilities in the evening. Whilst the brochure and the notes below quote a specific subject for each day, this is set up to a year ahead. There will be some flexibility and the actual subject is open to negotiation by those attending the course if all those attending are in full agreement ( and the tutor is too !! ) The first of the new sets of CP days starts in March 2019 and the second set in September 2019. more details below. For those wishing to tackle animal and bird studies in Coloured Pencil, Jonathan Newey - a well known and skilled tutor - also undertakes courses at Knuston Hall, and details of his courses can be obtained from the College. Some information is included below.. A college prospectus listing all the courses can be obtained from the College office, through which all bookings are made: www.knustonhall.org.uk Knuston Hall Irchester Wellingborough Northamptonshire NN29 7EU United Kingdom Tel ( UK ) 01604 362200 EMail : enquiries@knustonhall.org.uk

This all took time to manage and a decision has been taken to cut out all but the few listings above . All effort is now going into maintaining this free site with the limited time available and I no longer chase round after people to offer free advertising ! Sorry folks ! Similarly, the site here used to promote national coloured pencil societies, but statistics here showed next to no readership of those pages and it seems pointless trying to maintain contact and links no one is using. There are a host of resources on social media like Facebook as well as YouTube these days, as well as blogs attached to organisations and companies like the SAA, JacksonsArt, etc. The amount of data here has been reduced to simplify maintenance.
