Enjoy a day of creativity and fun, by retreating to the foot of the East Sussex Downs, for a one day workshop experience led by Laura.
Courses can be tailored for complete beginners and also for intermediate artists wishing to explore new approaches.
You will be supported to make a unique mixed-media artwork to take home at the end of the day, by being playful and exploring different mixed-media techniques.
The day covers various aspects of mixed-media techniques:
- Working with different mediums, including paint, gesso and gels
- Painting backgrounds and layers using different techniques
- Playing with papers, fabric, photographs and collage
- Using found and repurposed materials
- Stamping and stencilling
- Adding texture
I like to use recycled and found materials in my workshops, and to add layers of meaning in the artwork by using materials which have meaning to you personally. If you have some paper or material that you wish to incorporate into your work that is meaningful to you, then please feel free to bring this along with you & we can advise if it is suitable to use (examples include a photocopy of a special photograph, a map, a letter, a small piece of lace, and so on).
What's included in the price?
The day includes all materials and tools (including a small canvas for those who wish to use one). You may wish to bring an apron to protect your clothes You may wish to bring other found materials as stated above.
Tea & coffee is included in the cost.
Price is per person (based on a minimum of 2 people - workshop days for individuals are £150 per person).
Date can be arranged at time of booking or by using a gift certificate.
