Book in some creative down time to look at life’s finer details. In this workshop we will create three botanical illustrations using pencils, ink and watercolours. Develop your drawing abilities to successfully render correct scale and detail of your chosen floral specimens. Collage your illustrations with mixed media to create an effective A3 composition. This workshop is for any artistic skill level, with all materials supplied.
Vanessa has always been an ‘arty soul’, growing up in Byron Bay and always dabbling in art and craft. She holds separate tertiary qualifications in Design, Visual Arts and Teaching, and enjoys passing on to others her knowledge and skills.
As a practising ceramic artist for the past 13 years, Vanessa exhibits her work at various galleries in Queensland and New South Wales, her work also part of private collections both national and international. She loves nothing better than pinching porcelain, decorating surfaces and splashing colour.
Inspiration for Vanessa’s work comes from the cultural richness that surrounds her. She weaves her experience of travel, art histories and daily rituals into her artmaking. Creating series of themed ceramic works, Vanessa uses either hand building or slip casting techniques and always strives to leave a trace of the hand on her work.
Vanessa enjoys exploring the possibilities of mixing various materials and processes to create art that is evocative, textural and desirable.
While it was very pleasant and well prepared the workshop content was not what was advertised. Disappointing
Wonderful course, caring teacher. A great 2 hours spent painting, chatting and drinking wine.
