Please contact me for details of local workshops near Burford, Cotswolds UK.
I run a regular term time workshop for a group of artists in Farnham; if you are interested in attending please contact me for further information. The Fancy Loft, Farnham Pottery, Farnham.
My aim is to offer sessions that are informative, non-intimidating and most of all enjoyable!
Develop your personal individual approach and style by broadening your knowledge of technique & treatment of a subject (and maybe you'll be introduced you to a few artists you have not yet discovered). Hopefully sessions will inspire you to continue and practise in your own time and facilitate your personal artistic development.
Sessions are informal and purposefully small to ensure you enjoy quality instruction and direction. With the more experienced members of the group my role is increasingly as a mentor, providing context/technical support or advice whilst they follow their own path. Most members are currently working on self generated projects which is a wonderfully creative environment to be working in! For less experienced participants after a discussion regarding their interests and aims the sessions will consist of a blend of exercises, tuition and examples to develop their skills, knowledge and confidence and allow them to explore their creativity and produce their own work.
Individual tuition and direction is offered and if appropriate to the session a critique towards the end. Lots of visual reference will be included to illustrate the sessions aims & objectives and to enrich both your artistic experience and broaden your exposure to how differently artists respond to their subject.
Art can often be exasperating especially when you fail to produce something to your satisfaction and feel that you have failed to achieve what you have set out to accomplish. Often with very little instruction one can achieve significantly more and be surprised at what others see and admire in ones work or the aspects that they regard as a success. Working in a group therefore can be very rewarding and fulfilling in itself and a source of learning and development providing encouragement and fuel for artistic growth.
