All workshops are held in Sally’s newly built studio, nestled at the bottom of her garden in St Ives, Cornwall.
There are no fixed dates - the workshops are very much tailor made for individuals and so you are able to request any date/day that you think would suit you best. If you would like to make a booking, please contact me using the details below and we can arrange a date in my diary.
During the morning you will be shown a simple technique to create an abstract design. We will then do a variety of exercises with mediums such as pastels, pen, graphite, acrylic inks, watercolours etc, before interpreting your design on a canvas. Using collaged papers, mixed media and experimental techniques you will be able to complete a textured abstract painting.
During this half day workshop you will be shown a simple and effective process for composing an abstract design which we will then interpret onto board. You will produce a series of experimental artworks using various mixed media and collage techniques.
Using heavy duty watercolour paper, we will produce a folded accordion style book which will be worked onto with collaged papers, pastels, paints and inks, creating apertures and flaps and even simple stitching if required. An experimental and textured way of working will be encouraged!
We will start by producing a variety of exciting papers using a simple mono-printing technique with acrylics. You will be shown samples of various book structures and we will then produce simple stitched books that will be worked into using your papers, together with various mixed media techniques, lettering, collage etc. Your book can be based on a personal theme if wanted.
Working to a theme, you will be given a small box to decorate in a personal and experimental way. We will then produce various cards, booklets, montages, display boards etc to fit inside your box. You may like to bring some personal ephemera with you to include in this artwork – Sally will be happy to discuss this with you before you come.
