Our Biggest Masterclass yet… with Matthew Palmer!

We are so thrilled by the amazing response our first ever ‘Try Me’ Masterclass with Matthew Palmer that we just HAD to share with you just some of the amazing feedback that our customers have shared with us…  


With over 1350 tickets sold, Matthew Palmer gave our customers a personal one-to-one watercolour painting lesson online, using the free kit to create two scenic paintings in the comfort of their own home!

Just look at what people are saying about their experience…

Thank you so very much to you all at Hochanda, and especially to Matthew, for the most fabulous Watercolour Masterclass!  Matthew is absolutely brilliant!!!! I have so, so enjoyed every minute of the lesson, and I will really look forward to watching the lesson again many times, as it was so, so enjoyable, educational, and has really inspired and given me the confidence to return to watercolours ... Matthew is so, so great at teaching! Thank you, once again!  I will also really look forward to taking more Masterclasses now, and all the art products on Hochanda are absolutely lovely and such great quality, thank you for such a fabulous place to shop, learn and be inspired ... I am very grateful to you all ... Matthew is such an amazing and so very talented artist, and I cannot wait to keep going with my painting now! It has been fantastic! Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, and I am so very grateful for such a superb Masterclass, it's been wonderful and I've learnt so much already ... With so, so many thanks and very best wishes, kind regards too ...Claire. - C.Winnicott
Just wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed Matthew’s class. Thanks for the free kit and class. The results were remarkably good, I loved being able to watch an artist expertly mix colours which I've not had the opportunity of previously despite taking classes at night class. I am keen to take Matthews series of classes, and the deal for this appears very good. It's great to use the same equipment and paints as the artist and try to achieve almost similar results. Thanks for the gift of the class and equipment again, really appreciate it - Cheryl
Hi I had a great time at the masterclass with Matthew, he is very good at explaining and he is a very calming person so I didn’t feel worried or apprehensive at all, my paintings are better than I thought they would be but I would like to do more of his classes - S Everitt

And so many people were happy to share their masterpieces; 


If you didn't catch this Masterclass, no need to worry - we've got an incredible Matthew Palmer 4 part Series for you. Find out everything you need to know and get your kit before the first Masterclass right here
