A message from Brenda & Boris

After more than sixteen years at the helm, we have handed over the Companion Support and the running of the Guest House to a new team, and Monika and Krisztina will be happy to deal with your enquiries.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support over the years and hope that our regular guests will continue to choose Seahorses when visiting Freshwater.

Brenda will still be very much involved in tending the gardens and Boris will continue to give studio art courses, so we will still be around Seahorses if you wish to say hello!

With warm wishes from Brenda & Boris


Basic details of this workshop are on the pdf poster below. Guy and Diana Minter have given printing courses a few times at Seahorses. Guy is now in his 80’s and has many years experience as an Art teacher. More recently Guy and Diana (his daughter) give weekly printing sessions to adults with learning disabilities at the Lantern Community near Ringwood. Seahorses Art Studio have once again invited them to give a course on the Sat 14th and Sun 15th February. As before, a soup and roll lunch will be offered as well as refreshments such as coffee and tea etc. All materials will be covered in the overall course cost. If anyone wishes to attend but has difficulty covering the cost please feel free to have a chat to Boris. This course will not be subsidised by any grant unfortunately and we will have to cover the transport, meals and accommodation for both tutors. The last sessions proved very enjoyable , both socially and from an inspirational point of view. Those with more experience are welcome to bring their own tools and materials or just simply ideas!. Guy has said he will not be covering woodcuts but MDF can be used as a substitute for lino. Some people may wish to print some Easter cards using images of birds, eggs and flowers etc  As numbers will be limited please remember to contact Boris to guarantee a place (
