Thursday July 18th. VERSATILE ACRYLICS. Bring your own image, sketch or idea in your head to work from. I will guide you individually. You will have access to various mediums (modelling compound, iridescent medium, gel medium, mica paste etc) to incorporate if it suits your work.

Consumables on a user pays basis or bring your own.

Saturday August 3rd.VINTAGE CRAFT…. CREATING FROM BREAD DOUGH .… this is not salt dough which is course and chunky. Bread dough, made well, is fine like porcelain. You can create your own jewellery using “clay” made from white bread and PVA glue (colour may also be added). Find out how and make some jewellery items or small figurines. The craft was developed by entrepreneurial women when, during the war, metals were not available for jewellery making. Polymer clay (which I have if you prefer to use this) has superseded the use of bread dough but sometimes it is nice to go back to vintage crafts using inexpensive, readily available materials. It also has a softer, less manufactured look. 10am till 3pm. $40 includes bread dough. Polymer clay and jewellery findings extra if required.

Saturday August 10th.WATERCOLOUR: Preserving whites. In the morning you will learn at least 7 methods to make sure you have white in your painting. In the afternoon you will choose one or more of these in a completed painting. You will find out all methods are not equally suitable for each subject…. our eyes are sensitive to the differences. You will also learn how to apply masking fluid and avoiding the harsh edge, cut out look than so easily occurs. 10a.m to 3 p.m. $55 includes materials.

REMEMBER 10% DISCOUNT IF YOU HAVE ATTENDED A CLASS/WORKSHOP at Forth Art Studio previously.

traditional Japanese marbling on Hosho paper<img

barbarasFirst workshop at Forth Art Studio fo 2013 was Marbling…… creating wonderful patterns on water to transfer to paper which can then be used for a variety of purposes. Great fun and so easy once you know how. We worked with a variety of materials and all agreed that the Hosho paper is exceptional in its ability to hold the colour. Liquitex glossies and the Japanese marbling inks worked well on a plain water base. Pigment ink (but not the pearlescent ones)are OK if applied with a brush but tend to sink if applied with a dropper even with extreme care.
