Due to the Corona Virus this course will now be delivered online. You'll need access to Facebook where you will be invited to join a closed forum. Here I will post the demonstrations - filmed live in my studio. You'll then have time to complete each task. You can post pictures of what you are doing into the forum to receive feedback from myself and other learners. Access to the group will remain for 3 weeks so you can complete tasks. If you can't join us on the day you will be able to see all the tutorials for 3 weeks. You will need some basic art equipment. Stay well folks!


The workshop will be supportive, with lots of encouragement to help you put pencil to paper. It is not about accurate drawing but about looking for shapes and symbols in nature so you can find your creative flow. You will be encouraged to experience nature, to breathe and really look. So if we are in lockdown you'll need access to a sfae outside space. 


We will:


Make an unfolding sketchbook

Get outside to draw (weather permitting)

Draw directly from what we see and find

Create a narrative around the season


You will need a4 cartridge paper/coloured or painted paper/collected papers eg enevlopes - pencils, fineliner, paper scissors and a pritt stick. 


The day runs from approx 10 to 4 (though as this is now online you can choose your time framework). You'll get to see where I work (filmed in my studio - I will take you on a tour!). Some materials will be posted to you - some everyday art items you will need to provide. You'll need to provide your own tea and biscuits and make a sign that says "Keep out" ;)
