‘Line: colour: texture in landscape…exploring concertina books’ with Amanda Hislop

April 24 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


‘Line: colour: texture in landscape…exploring concertina books

Once again Amanda Hislop will be joining us at Eau brink Studio for two days of exploring and making. This time we will be making concertina books from very small scraps of papers and fabrics.

Developing personal character and style; take an intuitive approach to developing ideas in response to aspects of landscape, through exploration in a concertina style sketchbook. Observe closely, looking for line texture and colour, to find the essence and characteristics in your personal choice of landscape generating abstract ideas for development in personal projects.

Use a combination of line, printed and found papers and collage to respond to observations within landscape, be free and explore those empty sketchbook pages…colour, cut tear and fold.

Refreshments and some materials provided. Bring your lunch and lots of enthusiasm .


The nearest Hotel for bed and breakfast is the Premier Inn Kings Lynn hotel, 12 Clenchwarton Rd, King’s Lynn PE34 3LW. This hotel is under 5 minutes away from the studio by car. Anyone who is booked into the hotel but has no transport we can collect and return you to the hotel at no extra charge.

Covid Postponement and Refunds

Here at Eau Brink Studio we want to ensure everyone who is booked onto one of our workshops is kept safe and we will follow the governments advice on educational workshops.

If government advice means face-to-face workshops cannot continue due to coronavirus (COVID-19), classes will be rescheduled to another date where possible.

Where this is the case, and you cannot attend the new workshop on the new date refunds will be provided.

If you have used paypal or card payments the companies take their fees out of refunds. Unfortunately, there is nothing I can do about this as they take their cut before they pay anything out.

This workshop books quickly so don’t delay.
