Beginners painting

This Workshop looks at the variety of materials you can use to create your own work of art. We will look at materials and their effects on a variety of surfaces. The Workshop includes using water-soluble pencils as well as basic water-colours, acrylics etc. At the end of the Workshop you should have at least two pictures to take away created by your own hand.

Bio:

An artist, crafter and tutor for many years – I’m currently trying to recycle and re-use as much as possible including incorporating re-cycling into all of my artwork.

Living by the sea has its advantages. On my various walks, I collect plastic items washed up by the sea – sea-glass, driftwood etc., and sanitize it all ready for use in my artwork.

My love of painting and craft work has allowed me to use my talents for work as well as a hobby.

I’m a Demonstrator for two of the major companies in the U.K. that supply Craft items for retailers. I have been on various “Design Teams” including Imagination Crafts and WOW Embossing Powders and have designed stamps and background papers which have been mainly for sale on the T.V. Craft channels.

I love all aspects of art and craft and am always trying something new. I’ve been holding Workshops for many years and like to make each Workshop fun and accessible to everyone both new to craft or experienced.

We are all creative in different ways and I hope to inspire people so that they even surprise themselves with what they can create and achieve.
