I first met Australian artists Peter Griffen and Denise Lithgow two years ago when they made their debut at the School in Alhoa, Portugal – http://www.artinthealgarve.com
They are much fun to be with, interesting and above all superb artists, and as you will see from their work, multi faceted. Together they offer a very exciting workshop opportunity. Dates for Olhao Portugal workshop – 24th til 31st May.

“I believe that to make discoveries, risks must be taken: the traveller must get lost. A well planned journey can only lead to an already known destination”. Peter Griffen.
An example of Peter’s plein air painting – acrylic on paper.
“My textile practice revolves around free flowing design and bright, vibrant colours. This approach is dispersed into different areas including silk painting, dying fabrics, machine embroidery and felting”.

With years of teaching experience between them, along with numerous solo and group exhibitions plus awards and prizes….a workshop with Peter and Denise will be both illuminating, exciting and much fun…..
