Leave the Christmas chores and treat yourself to an enjoyable day making Christmas Cards. Mono printing is a simple technique that gives fabulous results – you’ll be able to create personal Christmas Cards in no time at all! You’ll be shown two different mono-printing techniques; the first uses inks, textured paste and templates, the second uses inks, stencils and templates and an etching press. Examples of each technique will be provided to inspire.

What to bring; Sketches of your designs; Craft knife & cutting mat; Pencils, eraser and ruler. And any other card accessories that you’d like to add for decoration.

We’ll provide the paper, inks (acrylic & etching), textured paste, rollers & plates, acetate, glue, glitter, and drawing implements. (If anyone has their own roller that they could bring along, we’d be very appreciative!)

 Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided, but please do bring a packed lunch.

A member of CDS in the 80’s, Glynis Barnes-Mellish is one of the country’s leading portrait painters.

In April 2007, Glynis won first prize in the BBC series Star Portraits. Winner of the Daler/Rowney Watercolour Award in 1988, she has also been a major contributor to many books on watercolour painting, as well as her own books - Watercolour Workshop and Watercolour Workshop II. She has lectured, run workshops and demonstrated extensively throughout the U.K and Europe. Born in Kent, Glynis studied at the St. Albans School of Art 1971-1972 then onto the West Surrey College of Art & Design 1972-1975 and the after a brief sabbatical went back to the St. Albans School of Art 1981-1983. By constantly exploring the way in which the unique qualities of watercolour can be used to produce light and vitality in her work, Glynis has developed a skill that captures not only the subject’s likeness but also their very soul in a single moment of time.

Chris Christoforou has been a professional artist for 35 years and has built an international reputation for his wildlife paintings. He is in great demand for his presentations on his field trips to exotic locations.

Project Africa – An Artist in Conservation is one of his most popular talks, which is an informative and dazzling presentation accompanied with stunning photography. This presentation shows the beautiful landscape and amazing wildlife of East Africa, within the context of conservation. This is a major factor why Chris and his colleagues went to Africa. They ventured to help save the wildlife from the awful Canine Distemper virus, which claimed the lives of so many wonderful animals. Chris will explain some of this at the time of the presentation, as well as run through the incredible visual material. Project Africa will excite and inspire all who attend this talk.
