A day of drawing with line and wire in Hampshire.

How about staying in a yurt ?


“I sometimes think there is nothing so delightful as drawing”, Van Gogh.

If you agree with Van Gogh and count yourself as an absolute beginner or as a more experienced artist, it’s worthwhile practise to spend time exploring your drawing skills.

As part of our Autumn Art in the Barn Creative Arts Week we will be exploring natural forms through drawing with line and wire. Starting with the principle that everyone can draw, you will focus on learning to look, plan your ideas and create a series of drawings.

Working on different types of paper and using a range of different materials, you will draw natural forms with a particular focus on their linear and pattern qualities. You will also develop “drawings“ using fine flexible wire.

This workshop is suitable for folks who count themselves as a beginner, or those haven’t drawn for a while and they feel the need to brush up on the basics.

This workshop is the first of several we will be offering in October and will be held in the beautiful Long Barn at Meon Springs. This is a light and spacious venue that allows you to be socially distanced from the other participants with your own equipment.

We will be joined by artist, teacher and maker Liz Wellby who lives and works on the edge of the Peak District in Derbyshire. With over 25 years experience teaching and tutoring, Liz will guide you through this workshop.

Depending on government requirements in October, all appropriate social distancing measures will be in place.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

The workshop will run from 10 - 4pm, with places limited to 10, including:

tuition, all materials and use of equipment. Drinks and refreshments will be served throughout the day; please bring your lunch.
