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


Saturday 8th June 2019 | 10:00am - 2:00pm

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


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

To book contact Emily at jolleyemily@gmail.comor call 07758836695 if you have any queries

      Wonderful garden well worth a visit. Great variety of plants showing so many ways of portraying a garden layout. Must comment on the great tea and cakes selection, our dog loved the doggy ice cream!

      Beautifully planted area, in which you are encouraged to walk along paths between the plants so can be completely surrounded by foliage - a lovely effect.
