Picasso quotes are 10 a penny on the internet. How many are genuine and how many are wishful thinking…who knows.

Every act of creation is first of all an act of destruction.

I love life drawing. However, I have noticed that life drawing, as with other drawing can get a little repetitive. This life drawing afternoon is aimed at a fresh look at life drawing.

Everything you can imagine is real.

Please bring with you your favourite drawing tools, to include masking tape, pritt stick, various sizes of charcoal and large cartridge paper (A1). This is available to purchase if you run out.

This will be an exciting and invigorating afternoon of drawing.

Others have seen what is and asked why. I have seen what could be and asked why not.

LEARN ABOUT LINO Printing



  • At Bransbury Studio, nr Winchester with HAMPSHIRE ART studio
  • 30th January, 10.00am – 4.00pm
  • £80.00/person
  • tea, coffee and biscuits available all day. Please bring your own lunch

Lino printing is a simple form of fine art printmaking. 

Traditionally lino is used like a printing plate partly because it is cheap, and also it leaves no texture of its own. You will be experimenting with a few materials that can be easier to cut into. The lino/plate is then inked, a piece of paper placed over it, and pressure applied by hand, press or back of spoon to transfer the ink to the paper. The result, a linocut print. This is quite a simple process with often dramatic results.

 BOOK YOUR PLACE NOW

The easiest style of lino print is a single-color print. You cut the design once, and print it using one colour only. You often see black used because of its strong contrast to white paper. In this workshop you will explore different tools and different marks. AND produce a linocut print. 

You will need to buy the basic introduction lino kit, and some cartridge paper. Then you will be ready to Learn About Lino

Once you have used this workshop to learn about lino you can progress to more complicated approaches.

The CASS art kit is on offer reduced from £29.99 to £19.95
