Make Your Mark - mixed media workshop

Last Saturday I ran another of my 'Make Your Mark' workshop, an experimental day of mixed media make making incorporating lino cutting, mono print, paint and texture making. Its always a fun day with lots of output and "a-ha" moments! I will be running it again in the autumn. Message me through the contact page if you'd like to be notified when booking opens.

I'm enjoying sketching and pattern making, inspired by the idea of looking out from within. #stilllife #exhibitions #workinprogress #contemporaryart #collage
