About the event
This new and exciting workshop is hosted by Essex based artist Helen Mariner.
Pen and ink drawing is a time honoured technique dear to many artists because of the instant satisfaction given by the clear, defined line. We will use traditional and modern materials to produce portraits that look as if they were drawn by a Victorian master. We will start by looking at a few examples and then learn how to produce those effects, before moving on to produce our own family heirlooms!
All necessary materials can be lent by the artists. However if participants would like materials to keep, a traditional nib holder, high quality nib and small bottle of sepia ink (Winsor and Newton) plus suitable paper can be provided for an additional £12 each. (You will see on the check out page there is two ticket prices one with the material included and one without).
