Who here would like to be a bit better at drawing? My lovely friend Tasmin is coming to Badibidu HQ on Wednesday 18th October to run the first ever guest workshop. You can either attend just the morning, or the morning and afternoon. 


Experimental Drawing- Flora and Fauna

(open level)

About this workshop:

In this relaxed and inspiring workshop, we will be exploring dynamic and interesting mark-making techniques to create dark and moody impressions inspired by nature.  The focus will be on drawing with a range of materials such as graphite, ink, markers, brushes, and mixed media. You will be gifted a sketchbook of your own to work in and all other drawing materials will be provided for you. We will have a range of beautiful objects to inspire us- plants, skulls, taxidermy beetles, butterflies, and birds, alongside photographs of our local wildlife.

In the morning session, there will be a series of tutor-led drawing and shading techniques which will help you to draw more confidently, freely and with feeling.  The afternoon session develops on from the techniques practiced in the morning session to produce a final piece. This will be more student-led with gentle guidance from Tasmin. This workshop is about building self-confidence, being inspired by the beauty of nature, and developing your own personal style. All abilities are welcome!

Skills covered:

. Drawing with accuracy

. Ink and pen drawing

. Shading and textures

. Creating mood
