This one day drawing workshop will look at some weird and wonderful natural history objects that I have collected over the years. Strange dried seed heads, twisted pods, decaying leaves that form amazing shapes as they dry out. You may not be able to identify what you are drawing but I guarantee it won’t be dull.
You will be encouraged to use a full range of graphite pencils and will be shown a variety of marks and techniques from clear outlines to sharp hatching and smooth, rich blending.
This workshop is suitable for all skill levels, where you will receive all the support you need to achieve a pencil drawing that is accurate and visually pleasing.
