Friday 26th August
1.00pm - 3.30pm
Artists use sketchbooks in many different ways: to build confidence in drawing, as a journal, a record of work in progress or a place to store samples. Nowadays, textile artists' sketchbooks tend to become works of art in themselves.
This workshop covers:
Why use a sketchbook?
An investigation into other artists' use of sketchbooks, looking at different examples and reasons for keeping a sketchbook.
How best to observe, record and store your ideas
What exactly IS a sketchbook?
Myth-busting. You dont have to be 'good at drawing' to keep a sketchbook!
How to start your own sketchbook.
This workshop invovles a lot of talking, discussion and sharing, but will also include some practical work - particularly the use of Gesso! The sketchbooks' friend!
Maximum of 6 participants per workshop.
Cost: £25 includes all materials and tuition,
PLUS refreshments, all tuition notes, equipment and design resources
