Great Workshops mean Great Fun
What a fabulous weekend we have just had with Amanda Hislop. A great workshop full of fun as well as stretching our skills.
The concertina sketchbooks were a bit daunting at first but once we got going we sped along the first side on the first day. It was fun sloshing paint, inks and glue over the pages to create a landscape.
Day two was a little bit more of a challenge as we had to work on side two and had to be mindful of side one. We also had to draw into the first side to add detail.
This workshop really makes you think about the landscape around us and makes you look at the detail of every tree, bush, blade of grass and the water.
It is fascinating to see things with this much detail.
Amanda will be back next year in April. Teaching us how to use our sketchbooks to create a piece of art. Anyone can join in all you need is a sketchbook completed with studies of landscapes. But if you want to join in be quick because although we do not have all the details yet we are half full already.
Next months workshops include Nodeen Salmon on the 8th and 9th May. We do still have space if you have been thinking of booking. https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/event/trees-with-nodeen-salmon-2021-05-09/2021-05-08/
A great two days of learning how to create fabulous trees with Nodeen guiding you to your finished piece. Lots of help and demonstrations with this one to ensure beginners can complete a great piece of art.
May the 15th we are Shirbori style dyeing with Procion dyes. Anita will be demonstrating how to mix the dyes and use them on folded fabric to create lovely designs for future use. This is a modern twist on a traditional technique. Places are limited but if the weather permits we can also work outside to give us more space for larger pieces.
Dyes and some fabric provided along with refreshments.
on May the 27th we have beginners bead loom weaving with Ruth Holmes. A lovely workshop full of glistening beads to create great designs for you to use in your work to to make bracelets. Basic kit provided with the option to purchase a loom of your own. Refreshments provided.
