In the third of three workshops focusing on one tree, we spend time doing longer drawings using oak ink and the drawing implements we made in the previous workshops - or any medium you like.
The three sessions will give
everyone a chance to see how a tree changes over time and also to
experiment with different mark-making materials and to loosen up their
drawing approach. We often get nervous about our drawings looking
right but when we use different materials from the usual pencil or pen,
it frees us up to observe more deeply - and play.
Kate Poland leads the workshops. She founded Cordwainers Garden and
Cordwainers Grow and is a trained print-maker but has returned to simple
mark-making and drawing to observe nature and feel good!
