Art Journaling Workshops on the Ridgeway National Trail – Spring 2020

I’m very excited to be working with the Ridgeway National Trail on a set of Art Journaling workshops coming up in spring 2020!

These two workshops are part of the Swire Ridgeway Art Prize Exhibitions established by the Friends of the Ridgeway, and taking place on both weekends.

Save the dates!

Saturday 18th April 2.00 – 5.00 p.m – Art Journaling workshop in Uffington.

Capture a sense of the historic Ridgeway and the famous White Horse whilst developing your observation and drawing skills. Take inspiration from the landscape and some of its historic artefacts and build a sense of connection to the Ridgeway though this fun and friendly art journaling workshop.

Saturday 25th April 2.00 – 4.30 p.m. – Art Journaling workshop at St Dunstan’s, Monks Risborough.

Capture a sense of the historic Ridgeway whilst developing your observation and drawing ,skills. Take inspiration from famous local artists, the landscape and some of its historic artefacts and build a sense of connection to the Ridgeway though this fun and friendly art journaling workshop.

No previous experience is needed on either workshop, just bring a sketchbook, pens and pencils. Booking for both is open soon!

Drawing Spring Plants and Flowers Workshop – 7th March 2020 Jo

Spend a joyful and creative day surrounded by spring plants and flowers as you get really absorbed, studying and capturing the beauty of these natural forms in your sketchbook.

12 and 13 March 2018

If, like me, you are inspired by the variety and beauty of plants, flowers and trees as you walk by a garden, through the park or in the countryside, you will love this informal and friendly drawing workshop.

 

 

 

18th April 2018

We will focus on close-up study, experimenting with shading and building up colour using chalk pastels, coloured pencils and pens, and developing techniques including cross hatching, mark-making and line drawing.

21st & 22nd May 2018

What to bring

You don’t need to have a range of expensive tools or materials. I use a set of fine-liner black pens, all sorts of different coloured pencils and a set of Stabilo felt tips, which I love for their particularly fine tips!

So do bring along what you have in the way of black and coloured pens and pencils, and if you have some chalk pastels bring those, and I will bring some too.

I’d recommend bringing a sketchbook or loose leafs of paper at least A4 in size. They don’t have to be expensive. We will be experimenting and practicing techniques as well as making time to complete a drawing, and your sketchbook will be the perfect place to try things out in.

When and where

The workshop is on Saturday 7th March 2020, 10.00 a.m. – 4.00 p.m. at Pound Arts, The Pound, Pound Pill, Corsham, Wiltshire, SN13 9HX

Booking is open and the cost for the day is £50.

If you have any questions please do contact me. 

In 2018 (almost) every day for a year I made a drawing of a plant or flower that I collected on my travels – have a browse here.
