Looking, touching, dreaming…..a creative writing workshop inspired by stone and sculpture.

Jun 24, 10:00

This workshop is led by garden poet Rebecca Hubbard, an experienced creative writing tutor and a published poet, with a passion for words, nature and art. Find out more about Rebecca's writing and teaching here.

Writers will touch, observe and imagine, using a day at on form to generate ideas, poems and stories inspired by stone, sculptural forms and the way these relate to the land.

There will be plenty of time to explore the garden and the exhibition, and a quiet indoor space will be provided for the workshop. £60 includes workshop, entry to the exhibition for the day, refreshments and a catalogue. Eat lunch at the Potting Shed cafe, or bring a packed lunch if you prefer.

Exploring structure in the garden landscape with Sarah Spackman RBA

Jul 10, 10:00

This one day workshop will look at finding the structure within the picture that you have chosen to paint. We will look at the different images found in the garden and sculptural landscape, and see how we can simplify the different areas of our painting to maintain the colour relationships between the light and shadow. Using oil paint and a limited palette, we will practise mixing colours to help define the structure within the painting.

You will need to bring a portable easel, stool, a sketchbook, charcoal, a large palette, palette knife for mixing colours, several oil painting brushes of various sizes, and a couple of ready primed boards for oil painting-preferably primed with white. You will also need solvent for cleaning brushes and plenty of rags.

Please bring the following oil paint colours: Titanium White, Lemon Yellow, Cadmium yellow, Cadmium red, Alizarin Crimson, Cerulean blue, Ultramarine blue
