Mixed Media. Decorate, Decorate, Decorate.



Join me for a fun few hours exploring pattern and shape, using multiple techniques to create stunning final pieces. This really is a day of experiment and allowing yourself to elaborate on your own personal style. All materials are included and with demonstrations throughout the day, you will be encouraged to use paint, pen, collage and anything else you fancy to make rich and diverse work. Suitable for all abilities to relax and enjoy seeing just how beautiful pattern and decoration can be. You can bring along images that you might like to copy, or stick on, or feel free to use some of the source material in the studio.

What's included in the price?

All materials and tools provided. Hot and hot drinks are available throughout the day. There is a deli and a tea rooms on site should people wish to use them, both are excellent. Feel free to bring lunch to the studio if you prefer.

I study landscapes, weather and seasonal change with a strong emphasis on colour. Currently I am painting with oils, but I regularly produce work with oil pastels, acrylics and inks. My love of the landscape and the ever changing weather conditions are my starting point, developing my work through sketches that explore composition and colour. From here, I work to create vivid and stimulating final pieces.
