A mixed bunch of flowers in a favourite vase or jug, is a simple pleasure and one that cheers; add a favourite ornament or two and you have a beautiful still life.
Numerous artists, such as Emma Dunbar, Debbie George, Emily Maudey and Jo Aylward, create images exploring the pattern, shape and colour of floral images. However, the Bloomsbury artists, including Vanessa Bell, Roger Fry and Duncan Grant, are the ultimate influencers of this relaxed, domestic imagery.
The workshop will be delivered by Alison Butler of Blooming Designs. With over 25 years experience as a textile designer and book illustrator, Alison will guide you through a range of exciting mixed media approaches, including collage, drawing and painting .
This workshop is suitable for those with a range of creative experiences, for a maximum of 5 people.
Please bring along: an apron, a newspaper and an A3 folder to transport your work home, a large pale plate or flat palette and a pencil case.
The workshop will include tuition, materials and use of equipment, refreshments served throughout the day; runs from 10 - 4pm.
