Collage Workshop with Emmeline Simpson - Saturday 9th Feb PM 2.00-4.45
Sat 9th February 2019 2-4.45 at St Barnabus Church, Jasmine Ln, Claverham, Bristol BS49 4PA
Join us in the beautiful and peaceful setting of St Barnabus for this collage workshop. Step away from the busyness of life and find time for yourself to create!
Emmeline has built a business from her cityscape illustrations which are transferred onto gift-wares such as placemats, coasters and tea towels and sold in retailers, such as Bristol Guild, Pod and the city museum. Emmeline's work originally started from her collage illustrations of her home town of Bristol.
During this workshop Emmeline will teach you techniques for building a collage illustration beginning with a line drawing and adding elements such as watercolour and acrylic paint, magazines and newspapers. You will take home your finished artwork, which could be a cityscape or landscape, or something more abstract if you prefer. This workshop does not require advanced drawing skills, but rather a willingness to experiment. Emmeline will advise students individually on composition, exploring options for creating texture and adding different media. Participants can bring an image to work from or use photographs provided by Emmeline as a starting point for their drawing.
The Workshop cost is £36 and all materials are provided. On this workshop learn new skills in a small group setting (maximum of 8 participants) which will allow plenty of time for support and advice from Emmeline as you develop your collage artwork. Most participants find they finish their piece during the session ready for framing. The workshop price includes tea, coffee or fruit juice and homemade cake. Please advise on booking if you require a gluten free option.
Free parking is available at the venue which is in a beautiful setting overlooking fields just 8 miles from Bristol.
Please note the shipping charge will be refunded once booking is made.
