This is a whole day course cementing the partnership between Aldeburgh Library, Aldeburgh Library Foundation and Aldeburgh Jubilee Hall. There will be six experienced crafters in the following fields:
Zoe Ansari makes quality hand-carved Lino prints from her home studio in Cambridge. Inspired by a love of nature, Arts and Crafts pattern design, music, folklore, and the endless possibilities of an overactive imagination. Zoe says; Carving the lino is so satisfying. Making and creating is when I’m at my happiest. It can be a lot of fun. www.ansariprints.co.uk
Introduction to Watercolour Painting
Brenda & Melanie Keable are mother and daughter, talented watercolour artists, inspired by the flora and fauna of our natural world. They are very experienced at introducing others to the joy that comes from expressing yourself and creating. No previous knowledge or experience required to attend this workshop which will include ‘paining a sunset landscape’. www.atthecherrytree.co.uk
Emi Gordon, born in Japan, developed an interest in western calligraphy and so moved to England to further develop those skills. She studied BA Calligraphy and Bookbinding at Roehampton University, and subsequently was apprenticed in letter cutting at the renowned Cardozo Kindersley Workshop in Cambridge. Currently she is working as an independent teacher of bookbinding. No experience is needed for the workshop but we will handle needles and a sharpish knife. Participants will learn how to create a single-section binding, which is the first element of bookbinding. www.emigordon.com
Caro Burberry grew up surrounded by the fields and woodlands of rural Buckinghamshire, and later Suffolk, that provided her with a deep and enduring connection to nature. A lifelong artist with a strong background in printmaking and drawing, she received a classical training at The Frink School of Figurative Sculpture. Caro has led specialist creative workshops for over 25 years and will show you how to take a drawing into 3D sculpture and make a dragonfly. www.caroburberry.com
Wendy is an experienced iPad tutor, and practising artist who uses her iPad as a tool to enhance her work; sometimes as a sketch book, other times to manipulate existing work. *To make the most of this workshop please bring your iPad with Sketchbook already installed (the free version will be fine).
