CANCELLED  Making your Mark- a day of tool and mark making

CANCELLED Making your Mark – a day of tool and mark making

October 8th 2020

With Emily Jolley and 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 more immediate

approach to drawing and painting and develop greater connection with


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
