Drawing Classes

Did you know that you can pop in to the studio for a drawing session?;-) We start with good coffee and then focus on drawing still life.

Every week we talk about different aspects important when you learn how to draw (knowing drawing materials, composition, line, tone, focus point, how to measure objects).

Beginners are welcome – please contact me if you are interested and would like to try it;-)

Japanese Book Binding

When I was opening the new studio I was planning to use it as my space to work as a freelance illustrator and run art classes & workshops. That was the starting point but very quickly I realised that this place has also a potential to be used in a different way and become a hub for creative events in Lincoln. I have a lot of ideas, so please watch this space;-)

The first step to have more open approach was to invite others to share their knowledge and passion for art and craft and run amazing workshops from my studio.

In March it was Paul from Nyudo Japanese book Binding who run the first workshop for beginners. Everyone crated two notebooks and we had a pleasure to use lovely Chiyogami papers based on kimono designs.

There was a lot of interest in this workshop and we decided to organise another one in May. If you would like to join us, please check details here:

Handmade Easter

It was snow outside but it did not stop us to have fun with making Easter Decorations;-) Instead of buying ready made stuff we opened a bottle of wine and have been working hard to create ours, very special and unique decor for Easter. There is something very therapeutic in sitting together, chatting and being creative! You can’t buy it on High Street!;-)

Painting On Cotton Bags

We were busy in the Bailgate Studio with painting on cotton bags. I would like to show you one example of bag made during this workshop. It is a present for three year old who needs a storage bag for his Lego;-)

Hand painted cotton bags make a great present and this is a very practical solution if you need to store your stuff in style and stay eco;-)

Card Making Workshop

We had a very busy evening in the Bailgate Studio! Again, I was totally amazed by the quality of cards which were made during this workshop. We have started with painting our own backgrounds and later these hand painted backgrounds were used for creating bespoke cards. After few hours we had almost 50 cards done!

Please contact me if you would like to attend this type of workshop;-)

 

Japanese Brush Painting Workshop

I was really impressed after this workshop. As far as I know everyone was a beginner and the results were amazing! Did I mention before that we had a special treat?;-) freshly made sushi by LincSushi – thank you Agnes! Please let me know if you would like to join us for this type of workshop – we plan the next one in February;-)

 

Card Making Workshop In February

I would like to show you some ideas for card making workshop I am planning to run in February. I used hand painted backgrounds to create these colourful cards. As you can see I was keeping all designs very simple to show you how easily it can be done;-) but of course you can always do it much more complex;-)
I had few questions about dates for this workshop – I could do 3nd and 10th of February (let me know if you would prefer different dates). Would it be any good?;-) Please let me know if you would like to try this type of card making.
The price will be 25Pounds per person for 3 hours workshop, all materials (10 cards with envelopes per person) hot drink and cookies;-) included. You can bring bottle of wine;-)
