Chinese Brush Painting (18+)

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN TAKING THIS COURSE AS A SATURDAY WORKSHOP PLEASE CONTACT US. 

Chinese Brush Painting is an ancient art form that allows you to create beautiful paintings with a few brush strokes.  You will capture the "inner spirit"  of painting and be stunned by the quick results you achieve.

 

On this one-day Saturday workshop you will learn to paint by making your own ink, be taught how to hold your brush correctly and execute the basic brush strokes needed to create simple animals, fish, birds and landscape style images. By the end of the afternoon you will have created three or four small pictures which you can then frame.

For the fee of £55 which includes tuition, we provide you with a basic set comprising slate grinder, black ink sticks and a goat hair brush which you can take away with you to keep working on your own. We also supply the practice paper you need to work on to develop your skills and some good quality paper on which to paint your final pieces which will be 6" by 4".

Wilkinsons sells decent basic frames with a mount that will display three 6"x 4" images, currently priced at £7.99 should you wish to buy one and bring with you to frame your work. 

You will need to bring with you some scissors, a plastic water pot (which can be an old yogurt pot or similar), newspaper and lots of paper towels.  As the class continues through lunchtime, please bring a packed lunch and drinks with you. 

This is a beautiful way to learn to paint, ideal for de-stressing and relaxing.
