The Studio Above


The Studio Art Gallery


Welcome to The Studio Above and The Studio Art Gallery

in Acle, Norfolk

The Studio Above is a purpose designed area on the top floor of this Georgian Coach House in which art courses, workshops, meetings or events can take place.

The space can hold up to 20 visitors at a time. Tea and coffee facilities are included.

This space will be available to hire once Covid restrictions allow.

We're in The Wall Street Journal

Lorraine features as part of an article published in May 2021 about the beauty of the Norfolk Broads and why people, particularly artists, are drawn to the region.

To view the whole article by Ruth Bloomfield, which includes a lovely selection of photos of the area, visit (a sister publication that requires no subscription) and then search for the article about The Norfolk Broads.

Please visit  The Studio Above  page or contact us via the email below if you are a tutor looking to run a workshop/course/event or if you are interested in joining a class.

Art by Lorraine Auton and Tony Colledge can be viewed by appointment only.

Please contact us to arrange a viewing or to enquire about hiring this workshop space.

Lorraine is hoping to begin her courses again from May 25th. 

Visit the 'What's On' page to see more details about each session.

We will have appropriate safety/hygiene procedures in place for the group sessions.

Please note that there is no longer a separate Tea Room on the premises.

Book your place and enjoy a relaxing step-by-step Sunday afternoon workshop accompanied by tea and cake.

Watch the demo and then experiment with sgraffito technique to scratch away the top layer of paint revealing copper tones beneath. Use free brushstrokes, warm colours and metallic paint to produce a shimmering Norfolk reed landscape. 

Most suitable for those wishing to improve their painting skills.

£35 with canvas, paints and all equipment included. Maximum class size of 6 per session.

Here's some feedback from the artists who attended Lorraine's previous workshop . . .

" Just a note to say how much I enjoyed Sunday's class. My wife and friends were very impressed with the result. I feel a lot more confident at tackling skies now."

" Thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing, so big thanks to Lorraine for the inspiration "

" Thank you for a brilliant day. Loved every minute of it and lunch was wonderful too. "

Great news! Some of Lorraine and Tony's work is also available at The Norwich Art Shop, 75 Upper St Giles, Norwich.
