Susan, Howard and I first became connected through a mutual friend and plein air painter. Since then, we have talked about organising a workshop. Wilbury Tours is thrilled to welcome them to New Zealand, to create  the trip of a lifetime. Join Susan Blackwood and Howard Friedland for 11 days of painting and exploring the beautiful Southern Lakes region of New Zealand.
