Gill Denbigh

At the Alfred East Art Gallery

‘Often as artists we become focused on producing perfect finished works.  Whilst this always remains an admirable goal, we lose the opportunity to experiment with materials and simply take pleasure in the creative process.  This workshop offers a chance to enjoy the experience of mark-making and the exciting results that can be achieved using basic equipment allied to the opportunity to create and explore."

Please Bring: Black ink, Plastic container (an old ice cream tub is ideal), Protective clothing, Table protector. Paper and additional materials provided.
