The Crafty Lass® Sketchbook Creativity Class – COLOUR! Includes ‘Bind Your Own Sketchbook’
Tuesday evenings 29th January - 12th March: 19.15 – 21.15 The Crafty Lass® - Sketchbook Creativity Class
Come and enjoy a chance for some weekly social creativity out of your busybusybusy day at ‘The Crafty Lass’ Old Grain Store workshop studio! #CLOGS
Meet like-minded people, explore a new colour scheme each week taking inspiration from 'ordinary' objects. A chance to relax, draw, paint... Then bind your own sketchbook!
You will have a choice of mediums to use each week such as paints, charcoal, pens, pencils, and even ‘ordinary’ biros and highlighters, papers and fabrics for collage... Perhaps you’d like to add in a splash of colour, or purely draw in pencil - try something new, or stick to your tried and tested style! You are welcome to bring along any of your own trusty favourites too of course.
The papers we will be working on are from ‘Homeward Bound Books’ – they will be A5 in size and include various boards including handmade Indian paper, coloured, cream, different textured and kraft brown paper to further explore what works best as a base for each theme and medium.
One of the most exciting aspects to this course – is each A5 piece of paper will have holes pre-added for binding - and the final week of this course will be a chance to reflect - looking back at our drawings, deciding in which order you would like them to go – and most crafty, learning how to bind them together into a beautiful sketchbook to treasure as a keepsake of the classes. There will be spare paper to additionally add in to the book and continue the inspiration on post The Crafty Lass Creativity term.
There will be no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way to represent the colours and items on display – a chance to get expressive and creative! You can focus on one precise drawing for the 2 hour session, or perhaps make 10 expressive doodles – you can draw one item from the display, or everything in it and more - you can do whatever you like! You are welcome to bring along any objects you have that would fit with that week's colour scheme too to add to the display.
If lacking for ideas and inspiration – The Crafty Lass will guide you through with hints and tips to produce some exciting and interesting artwork.
Feel free to move around the studio – or swap seats with another person to gain a new perspective or different angle.
There will be a chance to take photos of the display each week should you wish to continue your inspiration and drawing beyond the class.
Each class will include refreshments.*
Make. Create. Inspire.
