The cast dries quickly and can be taken away at the end of the workshop.

Wednesday 29th, Thursday 30th & Friday 31st August, 10am – 4pm

This 3 day course explores the various ways that soft pastels can be used in conjunction with other traditional mediums such as ink, watercolour and gouache, to create fresh and lively pictures.

Pastel is a versatile medium that can be used to create detailed drawings as well as lively, spontaneous ‘paintings’. Colour harmony and composition will feature strongly in our investigation of this exciting medium.

Age: Adults
Cost: £170 (including 3 days & all materials)

    I am a graphic artist who has decided to turn my hobby into something more serious, mainly due to such positive feedback from others. I am now producing limited prints of my work and will be building stock to attend fairs. I came across your site and would love to know more about the project and if you have openings for new artists?
    kind regards
