The first workshop!

What a lovely day - the sun shone, I was joined by 6 brilliant students, there was caramel shortbread, what more could I want?

The inaugural workshop here at the Wooden House took place yesterday, 'Drawings with Rubbings'. It's so easy to be enthusiastic about these techniques, they work so well. Here are a few photos...

We mixed our papers and our media for really interesting results.

Quick! A photo of the caramel shortbread before it was demolished. 

I was so pleased that students made such good use of the pin boards. It helped so much with analysing the work and building larger compositions.

The beauty of teaching from home is that I can dash into the studio to grab whatever turns out to be relevant to the work that happens. Out came the antique newspapers and dictionaries - the old paper was the perfect partner to the rubbings.

Amelie couldn't resist having a go while we packed away at the end of the day...

A big thank you to my first students for making it such a fun day. I hope I'll be seeing you all again soon. 

The next class with availability is 'Altered Books' on either the 12th or 15th of April. Spaces are limited so if you're keen, do drop me a line and I'll save you a spot. Details are in the previous post, or by clicking on the tab at the top of the page.

Bye for now,
