Keeping a sketchbook is a creative form like no other. There really are no limits; it’s portable, cheap and a wonderful antidote for the high speed, smartphone-snapping world we live in. Sketching slows you down, makes you look, creates strong memories of place and time and gives you space in which to record whatever takes your fancy.
And the best thing is that with the right input I believe anyone can do it, regardless of their experience!
Along with my regular weekly classes, I am now able to offer themed Sketchbook Workshops, either for individuals or for groups and based in my studio or at a location that you choose. Get your best friends together and have a memorable experience whilst at the same time learning lifelong skills. Together we can design a session that suits you, either studio based or out and about according to your wishes.
Workshops start from just three hours for an introduction, but can also be planned for longer (two days back-to-back works really well).
I provide your group with carefully planned tuition which will enable beginners to be sketching in no time. The classes consist of exercises, demonstrations, one-to-one teaching as well as some challenges! They are great fun, inclusive, encouraging and enable anyone to start a sketchbook habit; a fantastic way of recording what there is around us.
All materials are included and you will be given your own sketchbook which you take home with you.
Workshops start at £10 per person per hour including materials. I am also able to travel off Island to accommodate your plans. Please ask me for more information.
