About the Course
With Lucy Perry and Amanda Sherring. Two Art teachers with decades of experience share their love of gardens and creativity in these exciting and engaging sessions based in beautiful gardens.
Venue is Fullers Mill, West Stow, Bury St Edmunds IP28 6HD.
Join us for a creative and inspiring day exploring the forms and colours abundant in the Perennial Trust’s gem at Fullers Mill.
Please note the different sessions on different dates:
24th August - Experimental drawing exploring colour, pattern and form:
The day starts with a tea/coffee and the opportunity to meet the tutors and participants before we explore the beautiful gardens at the edge of the River Lark. Our initial activities will be sketchbook based and help participants to develop their observational and recording skills. Armed with new ways of seeing, participants will be encouraged to explore the gardens independently and select a location for a longer study in their chosen medium. Tutors will be supporting participants throughout the day.
Skills we will be developing on the day:
Experimental drawing techniques recording form, colour and pattern.
28th September - Drawing and printmaking (NB this course is £75 - printmaking materials provided)
The day starts with a tea/coffee and the opportunity to meet the tutors and participants before we explore the beautiful gardens at the edge of the River Lark. Our initial activities will be sketchbook based and help participants to develop their observational and recording skills. We will then explore how to develop these into mono prints and a linocut to create a short series of A6 prints.
All materials are provided for the printmaking activities.
