Jackie Hadwin

Due to COVID-19 Jackie decided to postpone her visit to a future date that would be convenient for us all. With such uncertainty at this time her travel was outside the Government guidelines. We hope to welcome her in the not so distant future.

We welcome Jackie Hadwin as our demonstrator this month, Jackie has painted with watercolour for about 25 years, taking an evening course with the late and very amazing Jill Aldersley, after which she was hooked and never looked back.

She now runs watercolour workshops from her Undercrag Studio in Torver, Cumbria. She has joined Made In Cumbria, attending a lot of outdoor events and exhibitions and has retail outlets for her cards and artwork. She finds her small business rewarding and very fulfilling. She also runs projects with the local primary schools and youth groups.

Her enthusiasm for watercolour is infectious, she finds it an amazing medium, probably one of the most difficult to work with, but it’s ability to move and mix on the paper is fascinating and addictive.

When she paints she tries to capture the essence of the subject, always interested in creating an atmosphere and a connection to the viewer.

Jackie’s demonstration is entitled Animals in Watercolour & Pen; she is also leading a workshop the day after her demonstration (Thursday 12th March 2020).

Visitors are welcome at a charge of £5.
