I’m teaching two workshops at Fife Folk Museum over the next couple of months.
This Saturday 3rd Feb we’ll be practicing mixing colours in watercolour, a great way to break through the short-day gloom. I always find this time of year a bit of a struggle, this not-quite winter cold and dark. A blast of colour always helps. This workshop follows on from last autumn’s ‘Watercolour Landscapes’, inspired by the work of Robert Home who painted in and around Ceres. You don’t need to have attended that one to do ‘Water Colour Mixing’.
On Sat 3rd March we’ll be making the most of the winter twigs before the new leaves start to bud. Using local birch, willow and larch, we’ll learn how to make small coiled and stitched baskets, held together with linen thread and beeswax. As usual, I’ll teach the basic technique and encourage everyone to create their own unique design to take home.
Both workshops cost £10 each, supported by the museum’s Heritage Arts Hub programme.
