10 May Cas Holmes: Mark, Layer, Stitch – A Sketchbook Workshop
Cas Holmes led a wonderful workshop in sketchbooking. Students were shown various techniques for mark making and sketching. They were encouraged to try methods of drawing that forced them to relax and become more free with their own style. Works in sketchbooks can be used for textile art works or traditional art forms. Cas made the most of the studio and surrounds with flexibility and ingenuity.
They were taken outside of the studio into a beautiful woodland on the property surrounding Go Create’s studio. Students tried drawing with ink, pencil, crayons and other mediums to bring out the emotion and atmosphere of their surroundings. Layers of collage and stitch were used to build simple sketches into ideas to be built upon for future art works.
