Workshop: Measured Drawing Techniques

Our next workshop will be on Thursday 29th November 2018 at Llanelltyd Village Hall, starting at 10:30am, and finishing at about 4pm. The cost for members will be £10 and £12 for non-members. The tutor will be Ivor Arbuckle.

Participants should bring a range of pencils H – 2B, biro or other ink drawing pen (not dip pen), cartridge Paper min A2 and drawing board, at least 10 sheets (not rolled). Some brushes with black ink and some graphite sticks or charcoal would also be useful. Paper will be available for sale at cost and probably some other bits of drawing materials.

Now for the strange part- bring a cardboard box (large cereal box/photocopy paper box) or bigger – as big as you can manage. The box should closed, have all its flaps masking taped shut and the whole thing painted white to hide any lettering/logos etc. Rectangular boxes are fine, but if anyone has some more unusual shapes (cylinders/cones etc) that would be good.

N.B. If you are unsure of the suitability of any materials you wish to bring please contact Ken (ken.bridges@tiscali.co.uk or 01341 250302)

Tea and coffee will be provided but please bring your own packed lunch.

N.B. Please stay at end of workshop to help clear-up

Workshop: Light Effects in Watercolour

Our next workshop will be on Monday 30th April 2018 at Llanelltyd Village Hall, starting at 10:30am, and finishing at about 4pm. The cost for members will be £10 and £12 for non-members. The tutor will be Ken Bridges.

The aim of the workshop will be to explore methods of creating light effects in a simple watercolour landscape. If time allows we will produce the same painting 3 times attempting to portray different times of day. Ken will produce a simple sketch for attendees to copy.

Those attending should bring along watercolour equipment including:

  • Brushes small, medium and large,
  • Watercolour papers of around 18” x 12” at least 3 sheets preferably heavy 180 lb or above.
  • A good variety of watercolours,   yellows, reds, blues, plus earth colours .
  • Accessories including tissues, small sponge, pencils & rubber.

Because of time pressure and limited space ii is probably best to restrict the numbers attending to a maximum of 15.  Tea and coffee will be provided but please bring your own packed lunch.

Rhinogydd: Ancient Routes and Old Roads

One of our members, Jean Napier, has a new book being published on 15 November.

The Rhinogydd mountains are littered with the remains of human habitation that date back centuries. This little book gives you a taste of the drovers’ routes, old coaching roads, derelict gold mines and ancient tombs that still exist in this magnificent landscape.

Jean has explored this wild upland of Meirionnydd extensively over many years. Her passion for this unique land is evident in every photograph taken and word written.
