Exhibition Workshops

We are very pleased to be hosting these two workshops this year…

Printmaking using stencils

Thursday 8th August, 10.30am to 4pm; £30

Led by Di Purser

Shrewsbury artist Di Purser is a regular exhibitor and was a very popular guest artist in 2012. Her acrylic inks workshop 2 years ago was fully booked so we are welcoming her back to lead another workshop. This time she will show you how to design and create stencils from your own images. You will then have the opportunity to experiment with them to make prints and add paints and textures to create a unique piece of work.

Refreshments will be provided, but please bring a packed lunch. Attendees will be advised nearer the time as to what essentials they may need to bring.

Felted landscape painting

Tuesday 13th August, 10.15am to 5pm (at the latest); £40

Led by Susan Mulcock

This workshop is now fully booked.
(If you want to be added to the Reserve list, please email ).

Susan’s painting involves trying to capture the effects of light on the colours and surfaces of the land, showing the movement in the form of the landscape and developing the exposed textures of landscape features. She uses a variety of different breeds of wool, natural-coloured and hand-dyed, and a wide range of different fibres and fabrics, then adds machine and hand-stitching to give extra texture and depth.

Using some of your own images the workshop will show you how to produce a felted landscape “painting” based on the local area of the Shropshire Hills. Your subjects could include moorland and mountain, rocks, cairns, exposed trees or secret valleys etc.

The morning will be spent experimenting with colours and fibres to make samples that can then be used in the afternoon session, adding in detail, emphasis and texture to create an individual felted landscape picture.

Refreshments will be provided, but please bring a packed lunch. Attendees will be advised nearer the time as to what essentials they may need to bring.
