A brilliant day was had by all in this this drawing workshop with Bobby Britnall. We started with charcoal and mark making using rubbers, paper towel, stanley knives and white chalk which was a great warm up exercise. Some well worth framing!
We then did an exercise where we drew what we could see in the room then moved around and drew on other people's pieces. We were left with wonderful abstract line pieces and instructed to choose one colour and move around the room again adding one colour to other people's work. Eventually we sat with our own pieces and made some sense of them. The outcomes were wonderful as can be seen. We eventually cut some strips off the edge and played with them. some brilliant inspiration for further textile work.
We then had a huge laugh drawing each other without looking at the paper, with our opposite dominant hand , drawing happy, cross and surprised then using different combinations of colours including analogous, primary and complementary to complete them. Again some great ideas for textiles.
What a brilliant day. We had such a laugh. Many many thanks to Bobby for a great workshop.
