'Simple Woodblock Printing' Two Day Workshop with Rod Nelson

Rod Nelson Woodblock printing workshop

FRIDAY 27TH & SATURDAY 28TH JULY 2018

10.00am - 4.00pm

£130 for both days

Making prints from woodblock produces images that cannot be made in any other way. It is a fascinating and versatile art and craft of ancient origin and modern artistic relevance. This basic course will familiarize you with techniques, processes, tools and materials sufficient to make a small print using more than one single colour. You will learn methods to ensure accurate placement of colour onto a previously printed block. It will be an eye opener for beginners and experienced artists alike.

No previous experience is necessary.

About Rod Nelson: Rod, who lives near Nailsworth has made prints most of his life. Having professionally worked with wood, he has very good technical understanding of the possibilities of the medium. He takes inspiration from many different sources – from nature, from landscape, and of course, from other artists and printmakers.

The artist who has had the greatest influence on his work was the maverick Japanese woodblock artist, Shiko Munakata whose work has a great sense of freedom, and respect for beauty and decoration. However, he has also drawn inspiration from other woodcut artists Europe (notably Germany), China and Japan.

As well as having work in exhibitions around the country, Rod’s work has been shown in various UK galleries, Shanghai, and in Germany. He was a founder member of the print-making cooperative Pine Feroda, and currently teaches woodcut at the renowned college of the arts and crafts at West Dean in Sussex, as well as at the Royal West of England Academy Drawing School, in Germany, in Holland, and in Nailsworth. www.woodblock.eu

He is co-author (with Merlyn Chesterman RE) of the book Making Woodblock Prints, published by Crowood Press which is available to buy at Pegasus Art Shop for £9.99 and can be signed by the author during the workshop!

Tea and coffee will be provided throughout the day, but please bring your own packed lunch.

This one day workshop is a taster session for a totally new course coming up in 2019 where ink pen and watercolour wash is applied to make interesting and beautiful pieces of art.

During this day session you will learn the structure and methods of using ink and watercolour in harmony, how to balance the two complementary mediums to obtain the best results. Ink and wash is not new but you will benefit from Max's early experiences as an artist/illustrator to explore the vast possibilities that using the marriage these two different mediums affords.

The day will use landscapes as a genre to build your skills and to give you a really good grounding on the methods of using pure line with beautiful colour washes. Students will work from either their own images, or those provided by the tutor.

Suitable for all levels of artist whether new to this style or practiced.

About Max: Max has been teaching at Pegasus Art for four years and has built up a popular following of students. He attended Harrow School of Art where he studied Fine Art and was tutored by Ken Howard OBE RA.

He has been teaching for over twenty five years, whilst exhibiting and painting throughout. He writes for The Artist magazine, among others, and is an Ambassador for Royal Talens. He has had paintings exhibited in most areas of the country and many in London his passion to tutor and motivate others is obvious and works in all mediums.

10.00am - 4.00pm

Mixed-media is probably THE most creative genre, teaching the artist much about drawing and painting. This is a brilliant opportunity to enjoy experimenting with not only the materials but to help push back the boundaries of your creative spirit.

Experienced tutor, Max Hale, will guide you in having a go with inks, pastel, watercolour and acrylics! Explore your creative self and be completely free to learn. You will have the luxury of two days to ask Max whatever questions you may have and concentrate on a favourite medium or subject for longer.

Working from a series of photographs, books and still life you can tackle issues you may have come across on your own and/or try something completely new. You will take on a huge amount of information, and Max will give you lots of tips for getting the best out of the medium. With the art materials shop next door, he can also advise on the best products to buy to get you started.

Most importantly, it will be a fun and informative masterclass with plenty of encouragement and advice for future practice. Beginners are most welcome.

'Drawing for Abstraction' with Lucy Austin RWA

Lucy Austin drawing for abstraction workshop examples on wall

SATURDAY 1ST SEPTEMBER

10.00am - 4.00pm

£60

This one day workshop offers an exciting approach to making abstract images.

We will start by looking at curious domestic objects (grater, lemon squeezer) using a viewfinder. Using these observations as a starting point, we will create small linear drawings first in black ink on white cartridge paper and then in white gesso on black paper.

During the course of the workshop, these initial drawings will be developed into a larger collaged work by using layers of overlapped cut, torn tissue paper and pva. There will be a degree of transforming the work - by destroying and remaking.

Suitable for all levels of artist whether new to this style or practised.

This workshop runs in conjunction with Lucy's latest exhibition 'Shelf Life' showing at Ruskin Mill near Nailsworth from 1st - 29th September. All workshop attendees are welcome at her private view on Saturday 8th September from 2 - 4pm and the Artist's Talk on Saturday 22nd September from 2 - 4pm. Ruskin Mill, Old Bristol Road, Nailsworth, Glos GL6 0LA www.ruskin-mill.org.uk

About Lucy: Lucy has shown her work widely including Maidstone Museum & Art Gallery, Burton Museum & Art Gallery, The Sunday Times Watercolour Competition, Mall Galleries, The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, The Jerwood Drawing Prize. Her studio is at Mivart Street, Bristol. After her Art Foundation Course she studied Graphic Design at The London College of Printing and later went on to study MA Fine Art Printmaking at Manchester Metropolitan University. She was awarded a Printmaking Fellowship at Cheltenham & Gloucester College and is an Associate Member of Spike Print, Bristol. http://lucyaustin.artweb.com

'Sunlight & Shadows in Watercolour' with Barry Herniman

SATURDAY 20TH OCTOBER 2018

10.00am - 4.00pm

£60

We are thrilled to welcome Barry Herniman, a very accomplished painter and teacher, to lead this course focusing on sunlight and shadows in watercolour. A popular demonstrator at Patchings Art Festival, he is also an ambassador for Schmincke watercolour products, which we sell here at Pegasus Art.

Barry will share all his top tips and techniques for creating really dynamic paintings full of light and shadow. The day will start with a brief introduction and we will then work on some quick 'warm up ' exercises on paint mixing. We will have photographs printed here at Pegasus for you to work from, but please bring landscape images of your own if you prefer.

If you’re a novice, amateur or more professional artist, wanting to work closely with an expert in this medium, this will be a fabulous day. The aim of the day is to ‘have a go’!

About Barry: I am a full time artist and have been painting landscapes and seascapes for many years both in the studio and en plein air with my trusty sketchbooks. My favourite medium is watercolour, its immediacy and transparency is hard to beat and I never tire of watching the colours mix and mingle on the paper. Landscapes are my first love but I am at home painting anything from portraits to steam locos. I travel extensively both home and abroad doing demonstrations and workshops to Art Clubs and Societies. I am also an author of Travelling Sketchbook and Successful and Creative Washes.

  • A piece of watercolour paper, preferably not less than 140lb and either NOT or Rough depending on your personal preference and not less than 1/4 sheet ( 15 x 11") Please tape your sheet to a board. I use Saunders Waterford and Hahnemuhle 'Andalucia'
  • 2B Pencil

  • Schmincke Horadam watercolours - Recommended colours: Pure yellow, Aureolin, Indian Yellow, Rose Madder, Madder Red Dark, Madder Brown, Cobalt Blue, Ultramarine finest, Helio Turquoise and Manganese Violet.
  • Barry recommends that pigments are transparent or semi-transparent. If you're not sure bring all your colours along and he will go through them with you.

  • Spray diffuser bottle to keep the paints moist.

'Portraits with Form' - Oils & Acrylics Workshop with Max Hale

Max Hale portrait workshop

SATURDAY 27TH OCTOBER 2018

10.00am - 4.00pm

£60

Portraits are much reliant on drawing, although this day session will include some specific lighting to give a more definitive form shape to the face and give emphasis to the change of values and skin colour. Dealing with tonal changes can be challenging to colour mixing but will build the artist’s experience and skills in obtaining a more accurate portrait rendition. Using oils or acrylics, this full day workshop will include a live sitter and a guarantee that you will not only discover another dimension to portrait painting, but an exciting departure from the usual ‘flat lighting’.

Max prefers to work in water based Cobra oil paints, but you are welcome to bring your own traditional oils or and solvent or acrylics if you prefer. There are plenty of brands to choose from in our extensive art shop and we can offer you an additional 5% discount.

Tea and coffee will be provided throughout the day, but please bring your own packed lunch.

Please get in touch if you have any questions before the day. See below – we can provide prepared canvases, but they must be ordered in advance.

'Painting Tree Landscapes' with Fiona McIntyre MA

Fiona McIntyre painting trees workshops

SATURDAY 10TH NOVEMBER 2018

10.00am - 4.00pm

Acrylic ink, acrylic paint & collage. All abilities welcome. Opportunity to purchase signed copies of 'A Tree Within' at the end of the workshop (£25) Workshop price:£60

Successive Romantic movements from the late 18th century to the present day have featured landscape painting as a subject in its own right, which often emerged at times of anxiety and troubled world events. These include the high Romantic era of the early nineteenth century, the Pre-Raphaelites, the Pastoral Etchers, Neo-Romantics and environmentally engaged contemporaries such as the Arborealists. Fiona has been drawing and painting trees and landscape for the last 30 years. As a member of the contemporary art movement Arborealists she is uniquely qualified to bring her skills, knowledge and passion for nature to this unique course.

The course will involve spending a day in the studio developing paintings and collage on large sheets of watercolour paper working from previous sketchbook material using a variety of coloured media and paint. We will NOT be working directly from photographs so it is important that sketches and drawings are made outdoors in advance of the course. I teach students in such a way that their minds are opened to new possibilities of 'seeing'. Once students are freed from unhelpful habits I encourage self-expression through experimentation of media and techniques.

There will also be the opportunity to purchase a signed copy of Fiona’s book, 'A Tree Within’ written with co-author Alan Wilkinson for £25. Read more about the book here.

About Fiona: Fiona McIntyre studied at Edinburgh College of Art, followed by Malmö and an M.A from Winchester. She is a figurative/landscape painter and member of the Arborealists with work represented in various public, corporate and private collections in the UK and Scandinavia. She is currently exhibiting in France at Dortoir des Moines de Saint-Benoit, Poitiers and in a major exhibition at Southampton City Art Gallery in - 'Capture the Castle, Turner to Le Brun'. She is co-author with Dr Alan Wilkinson of "Fiona McIntyre: A Tree Within", published 2016 (Sansom & Co) and recently gave an illustrated talk on her art for a book signing event at Waterstones, Gower Street.
