Making your Mark – a day of tool and mark making With Emily Jolley & Lucy Williams


Saturday 12th October | 10:00am - 2:00pm

Making your Mark – a day of tool and mark making  With Emily Jolley & Lucy Williams

We will forage for materials in the gardens and surrounding farmland and then return to make tools using traditional, hand made techniques. We will then utilise our tools to make beautiful marks with ink on paper.

Lucy brings her basketry and tool making experience to the design and constructing of magical objects. Emily, a professional painter/ teacher will guide you through making marks and using the wonderful garden to inspire and liven up your approach to drawing.

This course will guide you towards a unique way of working, looking at your process of creating marks through constructing your own personnel tools that can be taken away to continue exploring and developing ways of making marks.

These processes are a great way of freeing up, moving away from traditional  art practice. Working this way can help to foster a a more immediate approach to drawing and painting and develop greater connection with environments

There will be plenty of time to enjoy the teashop and you are welcome to stay on and enjoy the wonderful gardens after the course has finished

Cost £55

Includes all materials but you are welcome to bring your own sketchbooks and any special items you wish to make tools from
