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.

Lavender (and wild flower) Workshop – In a Field by the River Test


Lavender fields in the SUN

Art workshop @riverside_yurt_cafe #artclass #wherwellstudio #stockbridge #landscape #lavender #markerpens
A very busy morning at the Riverside Yurt Cafe. After a frantic session trying varied, and new materials the class were treated to delicious raspberry and lavender jam and clotted cream and scones. They seemed to go down well.

Strong work was produced using a variety of different media.  The two most popular seemed to be black marker pens and the wonderful KOH-I-NOOR  12 Brilliant Water Colour Paint,  (Anilinky).  These are available from Amazon for less than £5.00. Well worth a play. The sun shone all morning and we were warm. This is noteworthy.

Keep a look out for Summer Holiday Classes at the Yurt. These will be for children and adults to work together…scavenger hunts, self portrait classes, picnics and mask making. The picnics are particularly good.  These might be good days out for Grannies and Grandpas with their grandchildren. More to follow
