NEWS & EVENTS
We are open from April to September, Tuesday to Saturday, 1pm to 5 pm. Other times and groups by appointment. Admission fee €6 House and €6 Garden. A member of the family will give groups a tour of the house and garden.
Art classes and photography workshops take place throughout the summer months. Pictured here are a painting by Andrea Jameson of the garden and Andrea Jameson giving instruction to a student during one of her art classes.
Tourin recently hosted three separate workshops. The aim of the workshops was to give participants a taste of botanical painting with Jane Stark, water colour painting with Norwegian painter Signe Weka and garden photography with Bernard van Giessen. We hope that all participants returned home with new skills and inspiration. We were very lucky with the beautiful autumn weather. Everyone could enjoy a walk in the garden and have their coffees and teas in the sun during breaks. We received very positive feedback about each of the workshops. Consequently we are already looking forward to repeating these workshops in 2020.
