Petschel House is open by appointment during the week and most weekends. If you would like to be sure we are here it is best to call ahead on 0417 585 102. We are very happy to take visitors through our gardens and studio if we are home. Otherwise – three special days coming up.
Petschel House will be open for three afternoons in August for guests to come and visit our Bijou Gallery and have a look around the gardens and orchards. The Studios will also be open. You may find produce to your liking, a piece of art or specialist jewellery.
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
