Please make sure that the hall is clean and tidy before you leave.   

Please turn mobiles off or to silent.

Watercolour paints and brushes

6th November Silk Painting   Workshop with Tessa Spanton

No previous experience of silk painting is necessary. The colours are vibrant and flow and mix beautifully. Several techniques that are used in watercolour can be used. It is similar to painting on wet watercolour paper. There are several ways of controlling the flow. We will use resists if you want to restrict the flow and have some crisp edges.

Choice of Projects: a. Paint a silk scarf or b. A painting

Bring some Autumn leaves or your own choice of reference, ideally it needs to be a very simplified line drawing.

Please bring    Watercolour brushes,  A palette with wells for mixing washes or improvise with an old ice cube tray, tray with compartments from a box of chocolates, small pots eg yogurt.  2 jars for water, Kitchen roll A pencil or fade away pen Polythene to protect your workspace ( clear or white is best eg bin liner)  and if you have them…

SILK; white or cream (eg habotai or pongee 5 or 8)   PAINTS Iron fix silk paints,   CLEAR GUTTA ( outliner)    Silk painting frame up to 12x16in and pins (or old picture frame, shoe box or other shallow box and masking tape)  Or, if you don’t…

A ready hemmed silk scarf size 28x114 cm including use of a range of iron fix paints, outliners /guttas and thickener for details.     Cost £6

For a painting, silk to fit a frame 12x16in, iron fix paints, outliners /guttas and thickener for any details.                              Cost  £3                                                                

PS An apron or old shirt might be useful

13th November    Paul Simmons

We are going to be tackling a LANDSCAPE in oils. It would be good to bring a reference photo. Don’t stress too much as I also bring reference material if you don’t have any.

You’ll need oil paints, solvent and painting medium. This could be turps and linseed oil but if you don’t like the smell, I really recommend Zest-it solvent and also their painting medium. Also something to paint on - a primed canvas or canvas board / paper.

Oil colours – my own palette is simple: Lemon Yellow, Cadmium Yellow, Scarlet Lake, Burnt Umber, Cobalt Blue, Manganese Blue, French Ultramarine and of course, White.

Neocolour or other watercolor soluble crayons or pencils

Don’t forget a palette, palette knife, brushes, rags and an easel if you have one – I will encourage you to work standing up if you can.

 

26th February   Deanna Sergent       Expressive Flowers in Acrylics

We will be working in a free and bold style on a fairly large surface...watercolour paper, board or canvas....whichever you feel happiest with but one that allows for expressive marks. We’re aiming for the opposite of detailed botanical painting.

Materials:

Watercolour paper or mount board or canvas....whichever you’re most comfortable with but of a reasonably large size (A3 at the very least)

Sketchbook/paper for initial composition and color choice...and watercolours etc.

Acrylic paint...I use heavy body, fluid and hi-flow.....acrylic palette of your choice

Acrylic inks...black or Payne’s grey

Drawing implements....bamboo pens, dip pens....I’ll be using a variety of found twigs (they’re free and ubiquitous!)

Brushes....I’m using nothing much smaller than 1/2” and mostly 1” and 2”

......and anything else you might want to throw into the mix to get creative and enjoy
