The Vegetable Patch of Life: Book Art (2-day)

Art Classes

13-14 Aug, 10am-4pm

Book Place

Open to all adults – no experience required.

In this 2-day workshop you will create a small artists’ book that holds flowerpots filled with our closest family and friends, seeds of hope, words of wisdom, rays of sunshine, positive thoughts and we’ll also sieve all the negativity into the compost bin! As we walk around your life’s garden we’ll discover ways to create dawn light and calm moonlight into our daily routines.

We’ll also work out how to make the grey dull rain filled days have a positive twist to them! You will be able to work with collage, drawings, and painting, making envelopes, cut outs and pop ups. You can bring pressed flowers from your own garden, your own bits of ephemera or memories, perhaps some photographs and we’ll create little vegetable and flower patches of happiness and sunshine all captured in a little book that you can keep with you always.

Materials (provided to the students)
– Watercolour paper sheets cut to size will be supplied to you for use in the workshop, as well as some offcuts of paper for collage.
– There will be coloured and drawing pencils, felt tip pens and 0.5 drawing pens available to use along with glue, scissors and binding thread (along with needles).
– Bone folders will be available to use to fold paper.

Materials (required by the students)
Please bring your own watercolours or drawing pens/pencils that you would like to use. We will be using watercolour paper so watercolours or inks are best.
If you like you could also bring things like pressed flowers or petals from your own garden to put into your book.

Tutor
Chrissie Nicholls is an inksmith encourages creativity as a tool for positive emotional health and untying imagination.
