River Test, Source to Sea – Longparish


Monday 3rd April

Meet in Church Car Park at 10.00am

£25/day

Spring on the River Test at Longparish is a burst of fresh, new life.  The trees along the banks are just coming into leaf, primroses and daffodils are everywhere, and if there is a field with lambs you can be certain they will be gamboling.

 

Longparish has different sized streams running through it, from the main river, through the mill race, the various ponds for coarse fishing to the rill running through  gardens in the centre of the village.  It is the very essence of chalk stream chocolate box.  Fingers crossed that it will be sunny on Monday 3rd.

 

We are meeting at the carpark by the church at 10.00am. Bring whatever materials you fancy. Please send me an email if you intend to join us. It is a very, very pretty stretch of the Test.

Buy a voucher for a Sketch and Scones morning  – it makes a wonderful alternative to yet another Easter Egg


Sewing and knitting have ‘stitch and bitch’… this is the drawing version.

Drawing is a skill; it requires practise, guidance and encouragement, adventure and more practise. In this class you will be taught about materials, different techniques, composition and, very importantly, you will learn how to look.

This is a class that is appropriate for all abilities.

You may not have picked up a pencil for a long time, or you might attend a regular, weekly class. The idea of these classes, and others that will follow, is to extend yourself, try  something new, revisit something old and to remind yourself that drawing is exciting.

Beginners Oil Painting

If you think oil painting could be fun come along to this introductory morning. All materials will be provided. Instead of committing to expensive paints and extensive equipment have a go with my oils in this class.  Once you have learnt the basics you will be able to join in with other Oil Painting classes, such as Beginners Oil…the Next Step.

Give a voucher for this class as an interesting alternative to an Easter Egg

Drypoint Etching


I rather fancied trying something new…with someone else doing the teaching.

Drypoint etching avoids all the palaver of acids and things and is a direct way of making an intaglio print.  I went to the Badger Press in Bishop’s Waltham and  I loved it. And I came home with a print of the back of the Bombay Sapphire Gin Distillery.

This is a  class about drawing.   It isn’t going to be called a ‘Beginners Guide to Drawing’ because nobody is really a beginner.
