About the Course
If the pen is mightier than the sword, step forth and choose your weapon!
Laura Darling is a Dundee-based illustrator whose quirky and playful work is underpinned by observational drawing and often features hand drawn lettering.
In this informal workshop you’ll discover how to use a light box to layer colours and lines, textures and patterns, creating vibrant, energetic illustrations. We’ll also explore hand lettering – how to create it and how to combine it with imagery.
Gain tips and tricks to improve your technique and keep your drawings fresh. If you ever worry about going too far with a drawing, then this is the workshop for you!
Please bring a selection of drawing tools (particularly ones you’re not sure how to use!). You are also welcome to bring objects you'd like to draw, or work from the eclectic range of objects provided. You will need a packed lunch, tea and coffee are available at the Centre
