Emma will walk you through a way of constructing a drawing from scratch using pencil, fineliners and watercolour. You will finish the class with a unique drawing of an animal or botanical inspired artwork. Yahoo!
The space will be decked out with fresh farm grown native flowers for you to draw on its own or in a bunch, as well as a collection of books and images of animals & plants if you would like to work from an image. (You are welcome to bring an image of something or actual flower you would like to try and draw too - we’ll have plenty though)!
This is a relaxed class that will give you an opportunity to have a go at learning a new process, or try working with some different materials at your own pace. No experience is necessary, this is very beginner friendly - Emma will be there to (metaphorically) hold your hand through the process :o)
Also, this class is at dinner time, so we will feed you! Very excited that Commonfolk will be hosting this workshop - they will provide a grazing table (all the cheese) and glass of bubbles upon arrival (if you’re not drinking, that’s cool - let us know and we’ll arrange something else!). The bar/coffee machine will be open if you’d like to purchase coffee/chai/tea, or cocktails. Or more wine. Or gin.
While alcohol is served in this workshop, teens are welcome to attend as well if they think they can manage the 2.5/3 hour session on a school night - but obviously, won’t be served anything alcoholic; please let us know if you’re bringing or sending a teen along to the class so we can arrange something else for them upon arrival!
