Metalpoint Drawing

Price: Regular price £60.00 Sale

Tutor - Josie Brown

Tuesday 2 April, 10.30am - 4.30pm

Discover the traditional art of metalpoint drawing, using metal wire on a prepared surface - similar to a pencil but eliciting far more delicate and subtle results. It offers an extraordinarily sensitive and refined finish, but is highly exacting so it demands a carefully considered approach. We will explore a range of readily available grounds and metals. An ancient process for those who already draw, it is not a how-to-draw workshop.

All materials provided, but bring any pieces of silver, copper or gold jewellery / items you may have lying around, such as copper coins, copper piping, can lids, paperclips etc. Please bring an apron and any references of your choice to copy or draw from.

Cancellation Policy: If you cancel your booking within 2 weeks of the start of the course or workshop you will not be eligible to receive a refund, nor will you be eligible to transfer to another course/workshop unless we can find someone to take your place on your original booking. If we cancel a course or workshop for whatever reason then you will be offered a different date, course or a full refund.
