About The Event

Materials and Information

It can be hard to get going with a sketchbook so pop in and join my regular sketchbook group whenever you feel like it! This small informal sketchbook group meets every two weeks and provides creative support, tuition, inspirational prompts and guidance to help start or develop your sketchbook practice. By using a sketchbook to record life's events, big and small or as a safe place to experiment and find your inner artist, you can learn a lot about yourself whilst developing your own creative skills. Maybe you want to loosen up, learn to draw, paint, write, collage, experiment...a sketchbook is the place for all that and more!

Abstract Journaling is like abstract are recordng not just what you see but what you experience with your other senses. During this session I will show you a range of techniques you can add to your visual journal to give variety and depth of meaning. This is a great way to deepen your experience of a time or place and an amazing way to record something quickly and spontaneously. 

Book onto this session and you will receive a zoom link to the live session.

After the event, you will receive a video link of the recording so you don't need to be there live if you prefer to watch and work at a time of your choosing.
