The School of Education and Lifelong Learning, Aberystwyth University is delighted to collaborate with Gliffaes Country Hotel in delivering a two day art course using the beautiful grounds and surroundings of Gliffaes.
Your tutor will be Tessa Waite who a highly regarded Lifelong Learning tutor, with a great deal of experience of teaching on location.
This is a 5 credit course which is always taught on location. Accredited at Higher Education Level One, it is tailored for all adults. The beauty of our art courses is that they are kept at small numbers so that you get individual attention tailored to your needs.
You will learn how to hone your compositional skills, look at line, tone and form and make a personal response to the gardens of Gliffaes. The ethos of the course is to work ‘en plein air’ with guidance from your tutor.
The course fee covers access to the grounds, lunch and a sketchbook. You will need to provide something to sit on, a sketchbook, paints and a water pot.
If necessary, we have an option to retreat indoors at the venue.
The course costs just £70 for the two days, which includes a light lunch on both days.
Lunch (soup and homemade roll) will be included in the cost of your course. Gliffaes are offering a special deal for dinner, bed and breakfast of £130 in a single room for the evening of 25th April (or £115 in a shared room). You don’t have to stay at the hotel to come on the course.

We are still unsure as to when we can re-open. I think it will be around the 24th May.
Gliffaes will not be open for outdoor dining only – I am afraid the numbers don’t stack up for us.
Mark Drakeford, The Welsh First Minister has given no definitive date for the opening of indoor hospitality in Wales.
This matter is further confused by the local elections on the 6th May. If Labour is returned to power he tells us that he will be minded to consider the opening of indoor hospitality on the 17th May and I guess he will give us about a week’s notice taking us to the 24th May.
Online booking is available and reception will be staffed from 9am to midday from Monday to Saturday, so please do call us.
Thank you for all your support and we hope to see you in May and beyond.
James & Susie Suter and all the team at Gliffaes.
