These sessions are held in our Education Centre (the Hills Room), usually on the first Saturday of each month. There is no formal tutoring so participants are able to use the class for their own work. All welcome from beginners to experts.
The fee is £18 per session or £180 for all eleven sessions.
Each session runs from 10am to 4pm.
Thomas Gainsborough (1727-88) was born in Sudbury and baptised at the Independent Meeting-House in Friars Street on 14 May 1727, the fifth son and ninth child of John and Mary Gainsborough. In 1958, Gainsborough’s House Society was formed to purchase the house and establish it as a centre for Thomas Gainsborough. The Museum opened to the public in 1961 and has remained open for over 50 years. The beautiful historic garden at the heart of Gainsborough’s House is maintained by a devoted body of volunteers, who garden exclusively with plants that were available in Gainsborough’s lifetime.
