Next Spring at Art in The Barn...
We will be exploring Experimental Printmaking, where you will explore using a range of block printing techniques, create your own linocut and produce a range of 1 colour prints.
Block Printing on Lampshades, where you will design and cut your own stamps and create your own hand block printed lampshade to take pride of place in your home. Create with a Gel Plate, will enable you to create beautiful mono prints without a press . Exploring the Power of the Flower through mixed media and colour. And finally, we have a new wire workshop - Fancy a Cuppa? creating decorative wire sculpture, inspired by tea and coffee.
As well as excellent tuition and skill development, there is one extra secret that sets Art in The Barn away from the rest and that is - the setting.
The workshops are held at the inspirational Meon Springs. A beautiful Chalk Valley nestled under the South Downs in Hampshire. And the courses themselves are held in a beautiful building - The Long Barn, which is an 18th Century traditional farm building on the Estate.
Art in the Barn is a collaboration between artists Alison Butler (Blooming Designs) and Liz Wellby, who met at Loughborough University whilst studying for degrees in Textiles and Sculpture in the late 1980’s. Since then, Alison went on to develop a commercial textile design company before marrying a farmer and settling down in Hampshire. Liz progressed her artistic career in education and now runs workshops in Derbyshire at The Slipper Studio. She loves coming down to Hampshire twice per year to run workshops on Art in The Barn.
The Location - a beautiful rural setting in the upper Meon Valley in Hampshire (Meon Springs).
The Venue - an inspirational C18th thatched barn, that lends itself to art workshops. It is spacious, with beautiful exposed beams, excellent natural light and superb views over the South Downs. It is a real treat to retreat from day to day life.
The Facilitators - are qualified and experienced artists and teachers, who love what they do.
The Workshops - are suitable for all abilities, be you a beginner or a more experienced artist, allowing you to work together whilst exploring your creativity and developing new skills.
Our Spring workshops include a few old favourites, plus some fresh ideas to choose from.
