About the Course

Discovering Pen and Wash, also known as 'Watercolour & Ink'
Christmas Card making course

This day will touch on colour mixing and using watercolours and it combines the subtle variable nature of the watercolour wash with finer detail picked out in black ink pen, allowing the artist different effects in shading and textures. The type of ink pens used - its water solubility and also stippling intensity and textures employed create a vast range of effects.

Students therefore spend less time on the course studying in depth colour mixing and and more time on different effects one can make with the pen compared to a watercolour course.

After painting your Christmas cards, 5 minutes with a colour photocopier will mean you can keep the original & make your own impressive cards from copies.

Our days are considered special treats; many come back time and time again and often combine it with a short break to the Lake District.

We have been hosting and organising 'Quirky Workshops' since 2005 from our friendly family run Cycle Cafe Tea Garden on the northern fringes of the Lake District. All our tutors are carefully hand selected experts and professionals and many considered as leading nationally in their field.

Want to review this course?

My first experience. It was a most delightful and rewarding day because of the encouragement of our tutor. This inspired confidence that only grew as we acquired useful skills that helped me improve my own style. Excellent food, company and range of techniques all contributed to a rewarding experience. Thank you.
