'What shall I do with my sketchbook?'
Jane Strother.

2018 Course listing coming soon.

Monday 24th to Friday 28th July
Your beautiful new sketchbook with empty white pages can seem too precious for ideas that might not work. Even those of us who have got through that hurdle may find it hard to know what to put in to it; others fill their books with sketches, notes, photos but struggle to use the resultant collection of ideas. On this course you will work from your sketchbooks or that collection of notes and photos you always wanted to do something with, extracting and abstracting from your observations to create more finished work. Much of the time will be 1:1 with the tutor. I will lead some sessions on use of materials and techniques, relevant to the needs of the course members so suggestions will be welcome. Suitable for painters with some experience who keep a sketchbook or those who would like to!
