If you would like to learn about developing your design skills and how to use accidental drawing and handy simplification techniques to develop quirky design ideas, please ADD this MORNING WORKSHOP to your selection in the scroll bar below
Most beginners find drawing intimidating. This session is about discovering ways to get around this and build confidence in ourselves, so that we can develop our ideas and our work. Dont be turned off this session because you think you can’t draw, if that’s you you’ll really benefit from this session- quirky kinds of drawings are - for this activity, the best kind of drawing.
*This morning session is ONLY FOR THOSE attending the afternoon session , but is a suitable beginner session for use with all our Saturday afternoon workshops ( lino printing, water colour illustration, collage, acrylic painting )
Afternoon Lino cutting and printing:
You’ll learn about the equipment, tools, paints and paper- and the important do’s and dont’s as you explore the different techniques and create your own printing sampler design.
This is a straightforward exercise to gain important understanding about the techniques required to produce a good printing result.
Fi will help you with the simple design work, if you need it - ( the benefits of a small class size) and no, you don’t need to have a ‘creative bone in your body ‘ to enjoy or succeed at this project.
Fantastic Art class starter for all levels of experience. We use easy carve rubber and Lino so no aching hands!
Depending on your individual speed you may have time to create a variety of prints in different papers, and there is an option to pre order a
Cutting and printing set to continue on with.
