Together with basic and alternative techniques, we will study the art of colour mixing, with an introduction to the three colour process system - once you get the hang of this you will never struggle to mix the exact colours you want again! Whatever your ability there will be plenty for you to learn and enjoy.

 A voyage into Beading  

21/22 July  -  Fee  £95

 

Have you ever wanted to make beautiful jewellery for yourself, a friend or family member?  Handmade jewellery is a special gift to be worn with pride and treasured forever.  This course is aimed at beginners and those wishing to refresh their skills with needle, thread, seed beads, crystals and pearls.

 

The course will begin with an introduction to the materials involved and an explanation of the spiral rope stitch. This is a super technique that once learnt, you will return to, over and over again.  To start the workshop, Jenny will teach you the basic stitch to make a simple spiral rope bracelet, before moving on to demonstrate how the stitch can be adapted using different beads to produce varying effects. Following on from that using seed beads, pearls and crystals you will produce a flat spiral bracelet, this is a variation of the spiral stitch - it is a stunner!  All tools and equipment will be provided but there will be a small charge for materials.

Beautiful Batik

 

Most people think of Batik as a medium for textile design, however on this course you can explore batik in a more artistic way.  Once you have been introduced to the medium and got to grips with a few techniques, you can create your own images.  Whether you choose to do patterns/designs or something more pictorial, you can keep it as simple or as challenging as you like depending on your confidence, patience and skill levels.  Beginners and improvers are welcome, with supportive tuition in a friendly and fun atmosphere.  All materials will be provided, for which there is an additional cost of £17.50 payable to Sue.

Fancy revamping a tired old family heirloom?  Using decoupage will give it a unique and fun look - and it’s easy to achieve.  Decoupage - from the French word découper, meaning to cut out - is a craft or art form that entails pasting cut-outs (typically paper) to an object and then covering them with several coats of varnish.  Decoupage is a fun and easy way to decorate just about any object, including household items from small vases to large pieces of furniture - the possibilities are endless.  This course will take you step by step through the decoupage process and bring it up to date using print-outs from computer images.  This course is suitable for all and there will be a small charge for materials.  Students will be encouraged to bring in their own items once the initial processes have been taught.

Pointillism - 23/24 July  Fee £95

 

Georges Seurat (1859-1891) French post-Impressionist painter is noted for devising the technique known as Pointillism.  He altered the direction of Modern Art by initiating Neo Impressionism. While Impressionists used small dabs of paint as part of their technique, Pointillism took this to the next level using only small distinct dots of pure colour applied in patterns to form an image and create an entire painting. This technique relies on the ability of the eye and mind to blend colour into fuller tones.  Students will be instructed in how to complete a small picture using the pointillist technique.  You will need to bring a 12” canvas, acrylic paints, brushes sizes 0, 2, 6 and 9, plus a picture of your favourite animal.

 

Tutor

 

Dee Roberts studied at Gloucester College of Art where she found a love of pen and ink as a medium.  She adapted the use of small dots to produce her work, experimenting with watercolours, gouache, oils and eventually acrylics.  After taking time out for several years for family reasons, she has returned to her art with direction to produce her best works on wildlife in acrylics using a technique loosely based on pointillism.
