Simple Blooms for Card Making

I’ve noticed that a few students are interested in making cards, and I thought it would be good to offer a course aimed specifically at creating simple, effective and on occasion, somewhat stylised blooms…all suitable for that gift card purpose. I will have some examples to inspire in class, and I will be demonstrating within the course. Guided blooms for you to follow & produce. Or take inspiration from what I show, and enjoy our friendly group surroundings to develop your own images and style. All materials are provided, but should you have something personal to you that you want to include, then do feel free to bring that along. The intention is for you to come away with confident and effective florals that are fresh, lively, and perfect for you to reproduce by hand in your own time for endless special & personalised gift cards. This course is suitable for both beginners and those of you with some drawing experience.

Katharine Ruddock

Qualifying with a BA Hons from Edinburgh College of Art, and Post Graduate Diploma from The London College of Furniture, my initial working life involved developing design & business skills at an interiors company in London. Later, self employment had me fulfilling creative briefs in illustration, small business logos, and occasional portrait drawing. Concurrently, commissions for domestic interiors grew, and over 23 years I built a successful interior design & decoration business, based largely in London.
More recently, a long held desire to concentrate on my own creative ideas had me return North, progressing my art and sculpture activities. Currently represented at a small gallery in the North East, fulfilling private commissions, and thrilled to be building this new chapter.
It’s exciting being part of Rossett Adult Learning - a really happy piece of life’s creative jigsaw - a lovely opportunity to share in artistic enthusiasm, and such a pleasure… meeting my students!
