Duration: 5 weeks

Playing with pattern, whether repeat or free form, can produce an intrinsically beautiful, non-figurative image.
Here we will be looking specifically at free form hand drawn pattern work. Whether bold or more detailed, turning out a piece of beautiful pattern is very rewarding. Learning to let go, and have the image flow freely is liberating. Within these 5 weeks experimenting and developing pattern work, exploring line, and adding depth with colour (various techniques), we will be looking towards future development possibilities for small and large scale works. You could choose to depict pattern deploying flat/graphic imagery, or perhaps bringing in texture, and creating monochrome or coloured pieces.
By the end of this short course you will have several sketch samples and a finished piece that you could choose to frame at home.
This 5 week course is suitable for both beginners and more advanced students. All materials are
