Either drawing, painting or multiple sketching. Come spend some time on your floral work, developing your techniques with guidance & encouragement.
An Intimate Class with Limited Places.
A course aimed at those with perhaps some existing floral skills, with a hankering for a change of direction, or just some guidance on how you might develop your work. This will be a small group of like minded floral fans, so there will be plenty of time to discuss, and the collaborative, intimate atmosphere will hopefully be inspiring and fruitful for all. Whether you are a returning student, or new to us…you are welcome to join the ‘blooming’ fun!
I ask that you come with an open mind, and prepare to let loose! You may be feeling something like “I want to be less tight” or “I find I keep making the same looking pieces” or “I can’t put my finger on why, but I’m not totally happy with my pieces!”, and no problem there… I’m here to discuss that with you, and offer possible solutions, perhaps prompting you to try a new approach or technique.
Provided art materials, that I may suggest you try could differ from what you ordinarily use, but please don’t be concerned… rather, prepare for an adventure…
Whatever occurs, I want us to have a fun & be creatively free. (Materials available in class will be - suitable papers, various drawing mediums, and water based paints & inks. We will not be working with oils).
I really do look forward to seeing you in class.
1: “Really pleased with my change of direction… thanks to you. You’re very perceptive Katharine! Great to meet a real artist & designer… I will enjoy trying out all the new techniques. I’ll sign up for sure, if next course timing suits. See you soon I hope”. Caroline E
2: “I’m seeing more detail, whilst also loosening up my work - I didn’t think the two could go hand in hand. You’re teaching me how to see AND how to put it onto paper in my way. A good feeling, thanks K.” SS
