Your Hosts Christa and Bill are both involved with art. With the new international art Gallery, the Turner Contemporary, Thanet has a growing arts community and is a great place to take a break and get away.
We are fortunate to be able to put you in touch with a number of local artists and craftsmen who can run short courses to suit you and your friends. The number of participants is flexible as are some dates on whch the courses are run.
The skills in the Isle of Thanet and East Kent cover many areas such as Painting in various media, Stained Glass, Photography, Cooking. Pottery, Meditation, Mosaics, Yoga and Bronze Casting. If we do not know anyone to offer the subject you are seeking we will try had to find someone locally.

Christa started painting after our four children had grown up. She spent a number of years attending Emily Ball's classes in Sussex, who with John Skinner, (Emily's teacher), are inspirational. Visit Emily Ball's Web site and John Skinner's Web site.
Her main materials are canvas & wood with Hammerite paints, Oils and Acrylics in a contemporary style. The Isle of Thanet Coast, personal experience and emotions are her primary sources for her ideas.
South Lodge is full of Christa's contemporary paintings.
"Just a short note to say how much we enjoyed our comfortable stay at South Lodge and thank you for your warm and friendly welcome and hospitality. We will be sure to return on our next visit to Broadstairs" DT & BG
Bill is a public and community artist who also creates his own sculptures from time to time.
Bill is a passionate believer that everyone benefit's from using their creative talents, which you all have. The education system today throughout Europe and beyond has a tendency to restrict the time and opportunity for children to use their creative skills at school. This needs to change. We will all enjoy life more and make more of life if we use our creative skills. Give children the chance of performing at their best.
