Make Your Own Artist’s Sketchbook
You will experiment with drawing, collage and printmaking techniques; all of which will be brought together into a hand-made sketchbook!
You will leave with a personal hand-made journal/ artist’s sketchbook full of your own produced artwork.
There are a limited number of FREE places available on this course, for those aged 19 and over (at the start of the course) and who either have a mental health condition or difficulty, are employed and earning an annual salary less than £17,004 per annum, in receipt of state benefit in your own name and unemployed or working and earning less than £338 per month (or £541 for household claims), are a single parent, or have a social or emotional difficulty.
By combining recycled papers together with your own artwork, the result will be a unique personal artist’s sketchbook/ journal that you can take away and continue.

Teaching methods include:

Furthermore, you will get the opportunity to develop your skills according to your own specific needs.
You do not need to bring anything; we will provide basic materials.
However, if you wish to work from personal objects, photographs, letters or memories, then please bring them along to the first session!
