The workshop will take place in the Craft Barn, where you will have time to relax, engage and take inspiration from the beautiful views from the window. What is included - All materials and tools are provided for you and the workshop includes refreshments. By the end of your session you will have completed 2 to 3 beautiful cards. Who is this workshop for? Everyone, but perfect for absolute beginners About your tutor Sue After gaining a degree in Textiles and Design Management, Sue worked in printed textiles and graphic design for many years. She has studied Interior Design with the Open College of Arts, Botanical Painting, Pottery, Silk Painting, Portraiture and, at the National Design Academy, Mural Design and Professional Paint Finishes. For many years Sue worked on commission portraits and murals, loving designing a finished product for a client and being able to see their expression when they view their work for the first time and know she has made something unique and beautiful that they will treasure for many years to come. Taking this love of design forward, Sue has also been designing and implementing a range of art classes and creative workshops, both for adults and children.  These include pencil drawing, silk painting, acrylics, soft pastels and watercolour. To ensure the quality of your personal experience, group size will be limited to 8. (Please note: a minimum number of 4 bookings is required in order for the session to go ahead) For more information about this event or other Rural Antics workshops, contact us via the message the tutor button.
