Do some winter landscape drawing!

Regular Creative Drawing at the Hearth at Horsley

Thursdays 9.30-12 and 1-3.30

This term's theme at our Horsley drawing sessions will be Winter Landscapes.

Each week I'll introduce an artist and technique or 2 to experiment with. We will spend the first part of each session playing with materials and developing ideas in warm-up drawings which you can incorporate into a larger piece of work in the second part of the session. We will then work into this every week. Don't worry if you plan to do drop ins....this will work for you too!

You can choose to join the morning group or the afternoon group. This term runs from 10 January- 7 February and you can sign up for the whole term for £75, or contact me the day before to just drop in for £20 per session.

All abilities welcome

All materials provided

I am also doing day courses at Newcastle arts Centre. Check out the workshops page of my website for more details.

Creative Drawing Summer School

Fine House Farm, Northumberland

28/29 August and 30/31 August

Working in the fabulous studio space at Fine House farm in the Northumberland hills, you will draw inspiration from the surrounding meadows and woodland working both collaboratively and individually on large and small scale.

For both workshops, the focus is on exploration and experimentation using a variety of materials with guidance and structure provided by Jenny, your course tutor. The first day will allow you to play and create with the second day giving you the chance to develop more sustained independent work. We will work both inside and outside as much as the weather allows.

Open to anyone, whatever your level of drawing experience. If you want to spend some time in the wilds of Northumberland, play with materials, learn from each other and enjoy the buzz of creating together then this course is for you!

Last Week @ NGC Sunderland!

Of The Earth

9th December 2017- 4th February 2018

An AA2A residency at the National Glass Centre in early 2017 enabled me to develop drawing and making skills using glass and ceramic processes unfamiliar to me. Using waste materials from the workshops, the remnants of industrial processes found washed up on local beaches as well as reworking drawings and objects made previously, this is a body of work which evolved through my experience of being in Sunderland and working alongside staff and students at Sunderland University.
