Catherine Pilgrim's 3 day workshop was everything I needed to catalyse me into action after a long break from creative enterprise. Catherine is encouraging, warm and generous in her approach. As well as being an inspiring artist, she is a great teacher. She nurtures your creativity and skill development gently and the wonderful meals and homemade cakes were a fabulous bonus.
As a number cruncher then farmer who has decided she wants to draw, your class was informative and most encouraging. Cannot really suggest anything that would improve the class... I came away more enlightened and more confident.
I joined one of Catherine's classes and, despite being the only rank beginner, enjoyed myself thoroughly. The atmosphere was convivial and supportive and we all developed our skills a great deal under Catherine's disciplined but gentle guidance.
Catherine's classes have enabled me to reconnect with the process of drawing. The classes are inspiring with their focus on observation,technique and individual interpretation. Catherine's skill, not only in her own work, but in bringing out the best in her students and encouraging discussion, results in a very stimulating learning environment.
Thank you for a lovely afternoon Sunday – always leave your studio feeling uplifted and knowing I’ve attended to a deep and important part of myself.
I always thought I was a detail person but your classes instilled new observation skills and highlighted the importance of accuracy and spending time getting the drawing right.
Hello Catherine, I'm on the way to Melbourne with my framed drawing - very happy. A mixture of pride, satisfaction and humility overwhelmed when looking at my first piece of artwork. Thank you so much for teaching me the skills I have learned and the extra help and time involved.
