Break up the week with our Sketchbook art class, suitable for absolute beginners to any level. A chance to meet and make regularly and get back into your creative flow. Make art, drink tea, talk art, talk life, meet others and make in our cosy studio. Each week we will work on a different aspect of art practice and fill our sketchbooks with creative experiments.
Beginners’ Class runs 9:30 - 10:45, Mixed Ability Class runs 11:00 - 12:15
When it comes to creative workshops that quiet the mind and contribute to our overall sense of well-being, this amazing class really ticks all the boxes!
You’ll meet with Ebru Koçak - our Ebru marbelling expert, for a voyage of discovery in a totally spell-binding process exploring the key concepts of painting on water.
Ebru is an art form that must be practiced slowly, with utmost respect and care given to each stage of the process - starting with making the horse hair brushes by hand, mixing paints from natural pigments and preparing a water bath using a specialised moss to create the correct viscosity for the paint to interact with. Each element of the process requires a delicate hand - rush it and it simply won’t work!
So this season we’re inviting you to meet with Ebru…
Meet with the artist (Ebru) and watch as she demonstrates this incredible process, gently talking you through each step. Meet with the technique (Ebru) and lose yourself in this stunning art-form. And meet with your own intuition as you carefully craft your own response.
All materials are prepared by hand by the artist and are included in your workshop booking. *Note: Please do not wear perfumes, use hand-creams or any other product on the surface of your skin or clothes when attending this workshop - all can affect the delicate water bath from which the paintings are made!
