MIXED MEDIA – SPRING CANVAS
Following on from Fiona Lambert’s ever popular series of mixed media workshops, we’re trying something new to challenge and inspire you.
In this beginners workshop, Fiona will show you the variety of tools and materials that can be used to create interesting marks and textures. Build up a background of different papers to work over with paint, or use line drawing with ink on top of decoupages. You’ll be able to experiment with acrylic paint, ink, pencil, pen and other media to create a unique artwork on a ready-to-hang box canvas.
Participants can bring a variety of papers, cartridge, newspaper, magazines, old photos, envelopes. You could also use found objects. Just what inspires you.
Mixed media is an expressive and experimental creative activity and did you know … we use these techniques on many of our upcycling projects.
All drawing and painting media plus a cutting board, ruler, craft knife, glue and scissors are provided.
Refreshments are included, for when you need a little break. The workshop will be delivered following current COVID guidelines. Spaces are limited so early booking is advised. Suitable for adults. All abilities are welcome. It can get messy so please wear clothes that you don’t mind getting paint on. Pinnies are provided.
