About the Workshop:

Walking in rural settings has long been inspirational for artists, poets and composers. Following in this tradition, Linda Ingham will lead three four-hour sessions, exploring how to place and the natural world may be used to inform mixed media studies and pieces of work.

Weather permitting each session includes a short walk along the River Ancholme or through part of Brigg, or a brief presentation of resources with a view to collecting and developing inspiration and matter to inform one or more drawn studies,. Students are also invited to bring their own inspirational sources – photos, sketches, objects, souvenirs.

Mixed media techniques include:

–        Using gesso on paper

–        Collage

–        ‘drawing’ with paint, as well as silverpoint, graphite, chalks, charcoal, ink and other media.

–        Methods of layering

On the first session:

Bring with you:

Small drawing pad and notebook; your camera or mobile phone; your usual drawing or painting materials, or a pencil or pen. If you have images or objects that relate through to a particular place you’d like to explore through mixed media drawing, do bring those also. Additional mixed media resources will be available to try on the day, and a small range of materials available for purchase at cost price.
