Join multi-disciplinary artist, Zoë Nash, for this mixed media, winter warmer weekend workshop.

The course will introduce a range of painting techniques that explore blending, layering, staining, working with washes, textures, and additives, along with creating simple glazes. You’ll create works that combine a number of different techniques as you develop visual storytelling and communication skills.

Winter Jam is suitable for total beginners and those with some experience who want to experiment with more innovative mark making to reinvigorate a current practice. By the end of the weekend each student will have a resolved artwork on board, finished and ready to take away.
