Gillian and Mark are renowned for their generous hospitality, making sure each student is well looked after throughout the week.
Accommodation is at Brynaport and cottages in Achintraid, within walking distance of Brynaport.
All accommodation is single unless requested otherwise.
Breakfast and dinner are served for all residential guests in the conservatory dining room at Brynaport. A full cooked breakfast is served, normally at 8am. The wherewithall for a packed lunch is laid out after breakfast for all students to make their own. Tea and cake is enjoyed in the studio around 4.30pm. Drinks are served at no extra charge from 7.30pm, followed by a delicious three course dinner, including wine, at 8pm.
The art studio is situated just behind the main house. Each student has their own table and a limited number of studio easels are available to use, as well as some folding stools for outdoor use. If you require any of these, please mention it on your booking form and we can reserve them for you. There is also a small studio shop, which we try to stock with the materials that each tutor recommends for their particular course.
On the last night there is a display of the week’s work in the studio, with refreshments and musical entertainment, to which local residents are invited. Day students are welcome to stay for dinner afterwards (for which there will be a small charge).
