A workshop that will see you mix up the order of things and combine a huge variety of pens including waterproof, watersoluble and even gel ink. A classic subject that will evoke the spirit of Carnevale and the mysterious anonymity of the mask wearers.
You will be taught the principles of designing for wood engraving, methods of engraving into a block of end grain wood, and how to print from your finished block.
A whole weekend to concentrate on one of Alison’s favourite subjects! The choice of animals will be entirely up to you and you will work through a series of exercises and techniques to bring your subject to life. Alison will share her animal portraiture techniques with you plus her latest material experiments to give your paintings character and life.
