Hi, I am Lorna Halstead, and I live in Melksham in Wiltshire.

I first discovered the Joy of Painting with Bob Ross, one night as my husband and I were flicking through the TV channels. By chance we happened to stumble upon this fuzzy haired American with a hypnotic voice. We sat and watched in amazement as he painted a fabulous picture in 30 minutes. I was then hooked, and Bob became a regular fixture in my evening viewing.

It was several years later when I actually decided to give it a go. I bought all the equipment and started to paint. It obviously took me longer than Bob’s 30 minutes, but the picture I produced was amazing.

I continued to paint using Bob’s technique, and finally decided that I wanted to learn how to teach and to share the experience with others.

So I trained and became a Certified Bob Ross instructor.

I am now holding Bob Ross Wet-on Wet painting workshops in Wiltshire, so if you have ever wanted to learn the Bob Ross technique in a small and friendly environment this is for you!

So if you have ever wanted to learn the Bob Ross technique in a small and friendly environment this is for you!

You do not have to have any previous painting and drawing experience or talent to produce some amazing results.

Better still, I will provide all the materials, including tea, coffee and biscuits, all you need to do is turn up, paint and have FUN.

I will take you step by step through a painting, and at the end of the day you will have created your own masterpiece (on a 16"x20" canvas), to take home.

I also provide demonstrations to groups and organisations, as well as paint and take taster sessions.

If you are looking for that perfect gift with a difference, gift vouchers are also available.

This really is a great way to unwind and let your creativity flow
