Event description

Description

Working from the contents of my personal curiosity cabinet, participants will be led through a series of observational drawing exercises and still life studios over the course of each class. Attendees can choose the objects that we work with, selecting from a range of natural history objects including skulls and other bones, botanical material, shells and fossils, insects and feathers.

Each class will start with demonstrations and warm-up exercises , beginning with short studies and experimentation. This will be followed by an opportunity to work from a still life arrangement, or from individual specimens. I have a number of books on anatomical and botanical art available to browse during the session.

Alongside traditional pencil and pen drawing, each pair of classes will cover a different specialist medium.

Workshops will take place on a Thursday evening (6.00 – 8.30pm) and Saturday afternoon (2.00 – 4.30pm), with the same specialist medium weekly, as follows:

September 26th & 28th: compressed charcoal on board.

October 10th & 12th: watercolour on a range of paper and card.

October 24th & 26th: wipe-out oils on oil paper and canvas.

November 7th & 9th: Red chalk on textured pastel paper.

November 21st & 23rd: quills and inks - black on white, and white on black.


Booking is recommended as class sizes will be kept small.

All materials provided, although you are welcome to bring your own.

Refreshments will be provided, although you are welcome to bring your own.

Free parking on site, and regular buses from town/railway station to the park and ride adjacent to studio.
