“I sometimes think that there is nothing so delightful as drawing”,
Whether you count yourself as an absolute beginner or are a more experienced artist, it’s worthwhile practise to spend time exploring your drawing skills and enjoying this experience. So why not join us in an inspirational setting on the edge of the South Downs Way, on Friday 9th October for a day of drawing?
This creative workshop is suitable for folks who count themselves as a beginner or those who haven’t drawn for a while and may feel the need to brush up on the basics.
Starting with the principle that everyone can draw, we will focus on learning to look, plan your ideas and create a series of drawings. Working on different types of paper and using a range of materials, we will draw natural forms with a particular focus on their linear and pattern qualities. We will also develop ‘drawings’ using fine flexible wire, with the opportunity to create beautiful wire fish.
We will be joined by artist and maker Liz Wellby, who lives and works on the edge of the Peak District in Derbyshire. With over 25 years experience teaching and tutoring, Liz will guide and support you throughout the workshop.
This workshop is suitable for a range of abilities and creative experiences. Places are limited to just 10.
Please bring along: an apron, an old magazine to transport wet work home and your lunch.
The workshop will include materials and use of equipment, delicious homemade refreshments served throughout the day; runs from 10 - 4pm and costs £75.
