ANN HULME

 

DRAWING AND PAINTING

Art is inspiring; to be able to render form, to give shape to ideas, to bring into existence the illusion of reality through painting and drawing seems like magic.

Some part of it is magic, but the rest can be taught.

The basic approach to it all, to seeing, is applying relative measurement, learning perspective, foreshortening and handling space, and this is what

we shall be applying on these courses. Working with colour follows from basic drawing. Painting on these courses can be in watercolour, acrylics or oil paint . 

Remember it is all to enjoy. There are stages as in everything and you can make good progress in a short space of time if you apply the basic formal elements.

 

 

VAL WELHAM 

 

CLAY DAYS

Working from various sources; photographs, objects, nature, you will be encouraged to experiment with abstract forms as well as literal interpretations.
Students who have a specific piece of work in mind that they would like to produce will be assisted by the tutor in any techniques that might be needed.
Complete beginners and those with some  experience are welcome on the course

 WEAVING WITH WASTE

Sarah has been weaving for more than 10 years, using a variety of looms and materials. Recently, as she becomes more aware of the environmental impact of producing, dyeing, and transporting new yarn, she has been experimenting using recycled yarn (from friends and charity shops), combined with unconventional materials, such as plastic packaging waste, cables, foam etc. Not only is this better for the planet, but these materials offer a whole new range of exciting textures and colours.
