Sketchbook Explorations in Mixed Media with Shelley Rhodes
Sat June 10, 2023 @ 10:00 am - Sun June 11, 2023 @ 4:00 pm BST| £200.00
A weekend of exploration for all levels, using mixed media with paper, cloth and stitch. Inspired by our beautiful surroundings at Stanton Guildhouse, you will be guided through experimental approaches to drawing, mark-making and presentation as you fill several small sketchbooks.
Shelley is a mixed media artist who records daily in a sketchbook. She has a background in graphic design and is author of two books including ‘Sketchbook Explorations’.
Demonstrations and exercises will help you to develop your own exciting, layered images using a range of media. The aim is to capture the essence of what you see using handmade drawing tools, collage and print. Images will be torn, chopped up, rearranged and reassembled to create a visually exciting, tactile work. You will work on paper and cloth and combine these in several small sketchbooks.
Shelley will provide a sketchbook, paper and cloth as well as some other materials. There will also be a list for each participant to bring. See below.
Light lunch and refreshments will be provided on both days.
This 2 day workshop will be taking place at the stunning Stanton Guildhouse, a 10 minute drive from Broadway.
Tickets £200 (12 available)
Please note that the artist studio is not wheelchair accessible and is up a series of steps. For more information about access please email email@example.com
Some materials, including a small sketchbook, fabric, paper and glue will be provided. A list of materials to bring will be provided and will include paint, drawing/colouring pencils, paper, knife, cutting mat, scissors, things to join, ink, basic sewing kit, etc.
Inspiration for the weekend will be taken from our surroundings at Stanton Guildhouse but you may wish to bring along a few objects that may be incorporated in the sketchbook such as leaves, pressed flowers, seed pods, feather, tiny fragments of slate or stone, etc as well as haberdashery, eg. buttons, scraps of lace.
