Join me in my studio at the bottom of the garden in Long Eaton near Nottingham. 


This is the first of 3 Mixed Media Sketchbook workshops that can be undertaken singly or as a group, building up the processes to create a vibrant mixed media sketchbook. 


On this workshop you will make our own sketchbooks and prepare them ready to draw in. We will add extra pages, fold out sections and pockets and add paint and texture to make a book that gets you beyond 'white-page fear'. 

We will start to tell a story in texture and pattern before you even put pencil to paper (part two). A good day to do before you go out drawing or go on holiday. 


You'll finish the day with a handmade concertina sketchbook, a small sketchbook of repurposed papers and a vintage book re invented as a sketchbook.


The day runs from 10 to 4. Places in my studio are limited to 6. You'll get to see where I work, my inspirations and books. Access is at ground level but the loo is upstairs so please consider this if you have any mobility issues. Materials are provided as well as refreshments through out the day. Please bring a packed lunch.
