'LAYERS & TEXTURES' 2 DAY WORKSHOP - 30 Apr/1 May
Date: Thursday 30th April - Friday 1st May
Time: 10.00 - 3.30pm
Location: My studio in Harrogate, North Yorkshire
Taking an intuitive abstract approach, this two day course provides the opportunity to develop your ideas through playful experimentation with a range of media, building 'layers and textures' to create exciting and unexpected results! There will be time to develop a few pieces in greater depth on the second day and by the end of the course I hope you'll have something to take home that you're pleased with as well as new ideas to inspire your future work!
We will be exploring a range of ideas for adding interesting layers and mixed media elements to your artwork, including collage, textures, colour and form, gathering ideas and inspiration as you go.
Taking your ideas and inspiration from day 1 you will be working in greater depth on 2-3 mixed media paintings (canvas or board - provided) over the course of the day.
Who is this workshop aimed at?
All levels are very welcome. Working intuitively is very much about individual process - where we tune into our own personal emotions or instincts. We are therefore moving away from rules, formal 'skills' or the notion of right and wrong. My approach is to guide and facilliate you in making your own instinctive choices, by providing a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where I hope you will feel at ease to create freely.
Groups are small with a maximum of four students per workshop.
All materials, paper & canvases are provided. Aprons and gloves will be available to borrow, though feel free to bring your own if you prefer. You may also wish to bring something to carry your work home in (ie large carrier bag/portfolio)
Refreshments including tea, coffee and biscuits are provided. Please bring a packed lunch with you.
