So, we have finally taken down the Christmas decorations and finished the chocolates and now its time to be looking ahead into a new and interesting year.
I already have lots of things booked in and I will be having a busy time both in the studio and at other venues, where I have been invited to run workshops.
In the studio I am starting the year with a course which will explore the amazing and probably less known possibilities of working with Quink ink.
This ink, which has been around for many years and was originally used for writing, has the most interesting range of pigments.
I like to experiment with different materials and when I came across this ink I decided to drop it into water with a pipette, just to see what would happen.....the results were the start, for me, of a new collection of work.
Having sold my original collection I decided to revisit the medium adding in more iridescent and unusual materials to create a different set of results.
I will be sharing some of these new discoveries in my January/February course. The focus will be very experimental and contemporary. Always a good way to discover new possibilities and to loosen up your style.
In February I will be running the first of two workshops at Highbury Church Hall in Cheltenham at the kind invitation of Nicky. This is a revisit and so I am pleased that people enjoyed my previous workshop.
I will be using acrylic inks in a contemporary way enabling people to experiment and explore. This will hopefully be a fun workshop allowing lots of opportunities to develop new ideas.
I think there are just a few places left. For further details take a look at my events diary.
Finally, I will just share with you some of my new experiments using Quink!
