Amazing Masterclass



As you can see, the recent Masterclass produced some fantastic paintings.

Spread over two days, it enabled Claire to spend time on more detailed watercolour work, such as buildings and people.

The first morning was spent drawing out the picture, with the first wash and colour added in the afternoon.

The second day covered some new and interesting techniques and effects.

Everyone enjoyed their two days and were very happy with their masterpieces.

Italian Cookery

We had a great class on Friday with the highlight being Pasta! Everyone hand-made their pasta and then after rolling it a few times through the pasta maker, we had a production line of tortellini making going on. Stuffed with a delicious spinach and ricotta filling, they made the perfect supper for everyone to take home. (I have now made about 200,000 meringues in the Aga from all of the remaining egg whites!)

Vanessa taught a variety of other italian inspired recipes, and the kitchen was full of the smells of basil, tomatoes, herbs and fresh bread.

Lunch was delicious, even more so with the sun streaming in.

The next two Summer Cookery Classes are on Tuesday 5 May and Wednesday 24 June, please visit the website for further details www.treetops-newbury.co.uk, or call me on 01635 44850.
