Workshops and drawing demos!

My art and illustration workshops are relaxed with lots of chatter and laughter

As well as conducting customer and retailer workshops on behalf of Uni-ball I have also run additional drawing classes, mark-making and up-cycling workshops.I am comfortable with larger groups, little gatherings and one to one tuition.

I’ve also done a series of in-store demos and trade shows showcasing drawing techniques as well as appearing on Create and Craft TV.

Learn to create delicate watercolour and ink art with my entry-level workshop

I love passing on my illustration tips and tricks to others. I adore drawing so I want my passion for the subject to be felt and enjoyed by other people.

Concentration faces!

I work with the fantastic Alexandra Waylett, providing watercolour and ink drawing classes and workshops at her Elm Farm Studio in Little Tey. It’s a gorgeous wee space and this is where most of the pictures are from.

I talk my students through every aspect of creating the illustration, going on the ‘journey’ with them.

My workshops are friendly and informal, however you will leave them having learnt something. I’ve designed my workshops for people to gain confidence in their mark-making and drawing skills. I want everyone to walk away with something they feel proud of.

I love seeing how people’s work come together and the variation in styles

I’m currently offering the following at Elm Farm:
1: Fashion a feather in pencil and pen.
2: Explore bird drawing
3: Create an owl or puffin portrait
4: Draw a golden hare
5: Two-day illustration how to: bugs, butterflies, birds and botanicals

I also love seeing people happy with their work

I’ll also be working with the fine people at Colchester MakerSpace on a series of up-cycling illustration workshops in the future so watch this space.

I’m very happy to work with people on developing illustration workshops at their studios or shops. Just give me a shout.

So proud of the work my students make and hopefully they are too!
