Spring Workshops

 The last couple of weekends have been taken up with workshops, in both Unlocking Creativity and Mixed Media. What a lot of fun I have had ! I love the variations in peoples work. Given the same brief, it's amazing how everyone comes up with a different end result. It has nothing to do with artistic talent but more to do with an artistic handwriting. Some came in with long held preconceptions about how their art should look, and actually found that using their non dominant hand to draw, created some wonderfully free work.

 I have a final Unlocking Creativity day next week, with one place remaining. If you are interested in joining us, see the link on the side bar for details.

Mixed Media day was spent experimenting with inkjet transfers (some were more successful than others! It's a trial and error process when using different surfaces) and building layers on a canvas using collage, pen, tissue and finally paint. It's very much a serendipity process, where happy accidents rule!

I will have another session of workshops later in the year, but if you would like to do one sooner, and there is a minimum of two people attending, I'm pretty flexible.
