About PETSCHEL HOUSE

ELTHAM SOUTH FINE ART: STUDIOS & GALLERY is a new gallery created from the legacy of Grace Mitchell (1916 - 2011) who lived and worked at this property from 1948. Jenni Mitchell, daughter and Mervyn Hannan (son in law) have continued to maintain the Orchard Garden and various studios on the property. The house is now open to the public as the exhibition space for Eltham South Fine Art Gallery. Painting, Sculpture, Photography and Textile work is on show from the resident artists and invited artists. The gallery is open Thursday to Sun. Jenni Mitchell also has relocated her painting school from Montsalvat to one of the studios at Six Mount Pleasant Road, beside the gallery. Classes teaching painting for beginners to advanced students are run regularly or by private tuition.

An Afternoon of Spring Painting

Featured

Join Jenni Mitchell and MervynHannan for a relaxing afternoon of drawing or painting around the extensive gardens, or in the comfort of the painting studio.

Petschel House is set on 14 acres of formal, cottage, orchard and paddocks with sheep and alpacas. The Bijou Fine Art Gallery will also be open as well as the picture framing workshops. 

Jenni Mitchell will give a quick demonstration of how she approaches the subject to get a quick sketch down to work on in the field (garden) or later back in the studio. Mervyn will give a pastel demonstration. 

Bring your favourite art materials, a hat, sunscreen and anything else you may need for working in the landscape (garden). You are welcome to use the painting studio instead and indeed, if the weather is unkind its where we will all be working.

Limited art materials will be available or you may purchase directly from the studios.

Please Contact Jenni if you are interested in hearing more about the workshop or would like to make a booking. The workshop size will be kept small so there is more time to spend with each student. 

We welcome artists of all stages – newbies and experienced artists who would just like to work in a lovely environment with like minded people.

Refreshments will be provided and we will close with a delicious afternoon tea. 

.Date: Sunday 15th September
Time: 1.00 – 5.00
Address: Petschel House, 107 Petschels Lane Hamilton

Cost: $65  includes refreshments and afternoon tea.
