Enjoy a day of creativity and fun, by retreating to the foothill of the East Sussex Downs, for a one day Brighton-inspired painting workshop experience led by me! By the end of the day you will have created a small unique artwork to take away, which is inspired by your travels in and around Brighton. This is a special memento of your trip to be treasured when you get home, and the canvas is small so will fit easily in your suitcase / backpack. The day covers various aspects of mixed-media painting techniques: - Working with different mediums, including paint, gesso and gels - Painting backgrounds and layers using different techniques - Playing with papers, fabric, photographs and collage - Using found and repurposed materials - Stamping and stencilling - Adding texture I like to use recycled and found materials in my workshops, and to add layers of meaning in the artwork by using materials which have meaning to you personally.

I recommend that you bring something that reminds you of your travels in Brighton.

The day includes all materials and tools (including a small canvas for those who wish to use one). You may wish to bring an…
