Wednesday, 16th August, 2017

You will be working in pencil, charcoal, pen, ink, and anything else we can find to help you capture something of the river and its environment.

Some materials will be provided and I will send a list of others things you will need to bring with you.

A delicious lunch will be included in the Yurt.

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.
