About the Studio
Featured on Channel 4, described as "The perfect place to teach art"
Meet the Artists
A family team who all studied art as mature students we steer away from traditional tutoring in favour of a more experimental collaborative approach. We are passionate about passing on the knowledge of the subjects we love in a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere.
Shore Cottage Studio is...
...sited in the most enviable position on the Wirral peninsula looking over the River Dee to North Wales, we have a real get away from it all secluded feel. The varying tides and open views make the studio environment an ever changing, exciting, dynamic, inspirational place.
We have welcomed visitors from all around the world and are well served by transport links. We hope to see you soon.
