Workshop: Uses of a Camera as an Aid to your Art

Our next workshop will be on Tuesday 5th February 2019 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 Jean Napier.

Many of you will know Jean and be aware of her work as well as her wealth of knowledge and experience in the field of photography. Members who use a camera as an aid to their work should find this Workshop informative and beneficial.

The workshop will have two principal sections:

Part 1:  Using a camera to gather subject material.
Part 2:  Photographing your work.

Please bring with you some of your finished work and a camera and/or a phone with a camera. Jean would prefer you to bring a camera as this will give her more scope to demonstrate what can be done within photography.

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

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.
