A joyful 2- day workshop creating a vibrant mixed-media concertina sketchbook. Learn to face the blank page with enthusiasm and gusto, working quickly and freely.
Inspired by the Landscape and the garden, we’ll use all sorts of mixed media techniques, ink, paint, pencil, pen, acrylic,watercolour, rubbings, gelli-printing and collage to freely fill page after page to create a concertina sketchbook.
Class will be limited to 8 people – small class size with lots of one on one tutoring!
At full stretch, the concertina is 8 inches high and over 15 feet long!
This exciting format invites experimentation and letting your imagination run free.
Starting with a loose and abstract background, you’ll learn:
- Loads of exciting ways to make marks and mix colour.
- That you don’t have to be a great draughtsman, or even draw at all!
- How to make botanical gelli prints and incorporate them into your design
- How to transform 15 feet of blank paper into your own garden song!
