Overview: The workshop will be suitable for beginners and more experienced painters. In the morning I will demonstrate how to get colours to run together and how to prevent them getting out of control or making 'cauliflowers'. We will practice simple techniques. In the afternoon I will demonstrate a minimalist painting of a misty scene over water. Please bring with you a couple of small to medium sized sketches of a very simple scene such as a boat floating on water, children playing on the beach or a few trees in the distance beyond a lake.

I will provide some large brushes, paper and some sketching ideas. I will also bring approx. four boards and tape for those who do not have one, and a hair dryer.

Ros Ridley Event PictureWhat to bring:

- Your usual watercolour paints and mixing palette.
- The largest brushes you can manage.
- At least one small brush.
- Langton (Bockingford) 300gm NOT paper or similar.
- Drawing board and mounting tape if possible.
- Roll of soft loo paper.

Sherry Rea Wshop - Seahorse

Overview: Learn how to make collagraph artwork by printmaking from collages.

We will explore ways of creating beautiful, interesting marks. The joy of this work is a result of transferring the ink from the plate to the paper and the effects that are achieved.

Collagraph plates can be made by cutting into the card, peeling away layers of card, and by adding a variety of textured surfaces.

Suitable for beginners or those with some experience. In my workshop in Elsworth using a press. Although primarily a printmaking workshop, the day would be stimulating to those working without a press, and I will look at hand burnishing in relief printmaking and collages as textured artwork.

What to bring: All tools and materials will be provided.

 Workshop cost: £30 for Members and Friends, £40 for Non-members. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided but please bring a packed lunch.
