THE OLD GROCERY 10-14th April

We are excited to be exhibiting and painting live at the Old Grocery, High Street, Wivenhoe this April. We will have a pop-up signwriting shop open for business and there will be live portrait painting while you wait, so you can take home a portrait or pet portrait from your visit. There will also be some beautiful studio originals available for sale. If you want to be sure to get a portrait from as little as £10, contact us to book your slot!

Private view on Friday 12th April, 6pm-8:30pm, RSVP here!

Signwriting while you wait

Local signwriting legend John Struth and his plucky apprentice, Sally, will be producing beautiful hand-painted plaques to order. Marvel as the two left-handed lunatics lay down their lettering from right to left, while slightly tipsy.

Signs cannot be pre-ordered, just come on the day.

Live portrait painting

Stephanie Struth will be painting portraits and pet portraits live, from just £10 for a 20 minute painting. Stephanie has been a live speed painter at events for the last 8 years and has no fear. Please contact us to book a slot or just turn up on the day! Stephanie can paint you from life or you can bring a photo.
