Exploring Materials – Evening Course with Emma Gunningham

16 October, 2013  |  Classes, Public Programme, Workshops


A six week course starting Thursday 7th November – Thursday 12th December 7.30 – 9.30 pm

Each week we will create a new work using a different material to explore the diversity of picture making.  We will use charcoal, pastel, paint, collage and clay. The clay and collage materials will be provided.

I will set up a still life to work from each week, but students are free to bring in their own subject matter (objects, photos drawings etc) to create their own themes if they wish.

The classes are suitable for all levels of experience. The small group size allows for individual tuition as required and a mutually supportive atmosphere.


Cost for the 6 week course £90

A big thank you to everyone who contributed to the energy and buzz created over the weekend. A great time was had by all!

Talks by Matthew Collings and Arnaud Desjardin were an insightful addition to the artist and family activities which included a Nick Relph’s inspired workshop as well as one led by Hamish Mcpherson.

A short film of the weekend is currently being edited and will be posted here shortly.
