Inspired by Nature: Drawing & Printmaking

12 – 14 October  2018
Hartington, The Peak District.

Join us for a creative weekend in the countryside

Have you ever fancied creating your own designs but not known where to start? This weekend will encourage you to develop your own ideas through drawing and printmaking techniques.

Whether you feel that you can draw or not, you will create something unique that you can be proud of by Sunday afternoon!

You will leave have a finished piece of art – it could be a set of cards or a print – on paper or fabric, displaying your own unique designs. You will also have new skills & worksheets, helping you to continue your creative journey at home.

Suitable for beginners and non-beginners alike and for those curious to explore their artistic side.

Beginners will be guided through the whole process from start to finish, with time to play and practise, familiarising themselves with different materials and tools before having the opportunity to embark on creating something unique.

Those more familiar with the materials & processes will have more time to devote to designing what they would like to create during their stay in Hartington.

Everyone is welcome – come alone or bring a friend.
