Art Masterclass and Afternoon Tea Frames Quintessential English Scene

Art enthusiasts who fancy mixing an art master class with a delicious afternoon tea can book themselves onto a special one-off event that’s taking place at the region’s leading four-star hotel.

Taking place at Cadbury House in Congresbury, North Somerset, the event will see renowned artist Becky Milnor conduct a live painting workshop where she’ll reveal the techniques and secrets that have made her one of the most sought-after nature artists in the country.

Famed for using gold leaf on her work, Becky will transform a blank canvas into a shimmering image in front of the eyes of those present after which they’ll be able to practice what they’ve just learnt creating their own picture.

Once the painting has finished, guests will then be served a delicious afternoon tea including glass of fizz, allowing them to sit back and admire the work of Becky as well as that of other guests.

Commenting on the event Becky said: “As a child I lived on a farm in rural Devon and my happiest memories are of sunny carefree days playing outside and exploring the natural world.

“That’s where my inspiration comes from with all my art being countryside-inspired. I also love the glamourous art deco period and is reflected in my work through the use of gold leaf.

“Using gold leaf creates a stunning luminosity and I just adore the impact of natural light hitting the canvas.”

The event is taking place on Saturday 1 June. Starting at 11.30am the art masterclass will last for around two hours. Afternoon tea will then be served from 1.30pm.

Matilda Burgess, marketing manager at Cadbury House added: “This is a fabulous opportunity for any aspiring artist to learn from a true master. We’ve exhibit lots of Becky’s art here at Cadbury House with many guests asking about the pieces on display.

“This is more than just a workshop. It’s a celebration of creativity, culture and gastronomy all at the same time and we’re looking forward to welcoming both experienced and newcomers to the art world here to Cadbury House.

“It’s also the first of many one-off creative events we have planned for the Garden Room here at Cadbury House which we’ll announce over the coming months and includes activities such as candle making, wreath making and a somerset special menu event where we’ll showcase the best fare from across the county.”

Tickets for the event cost £35 per person and includes the workshop and afternoon tea with a glass of fizz.
