Workshop - A walk through the Forest in Pa

Nothing beats the colourful brilliance of pastels but they’re not the easiest medium to use. However you can now enjoy all the beauty of pastel in a convenient non-messy form. Derwent woodcased Pastel Pencils have a soft powdery texture which produces a velvety smooth finish ideal for mixing and blending. And because they’re pencils they’re clean and easy to control although you may not be able to resist the occasional smudge with your finger.Recognised for his stunning paintings and for his relaxed and easy way of teaching others Tony Hogan has been artistically driven from his early childhood in Saltaire Shipley. He regularly travels the length and breadth of the country giving workshops and demonstrations. His depth of knowledge of techniques and materials in all of the Derwent pencil products provide him with the skills to help and guide others along their artistic paths.Workshops run between 10.30 – 16.30. £40 per person per workshop. A 10% discount is offered for any two or more workshops booked at any one time.All materials for the day’s tuition are included in the cost of the workshop. Paper pencils fixing spray brushes etc. will all be provided per person. You will be working from a tin of 24 pencils which will give you the opportunity to experiment with light tone and texture of the pencils.A lunch break of 45 minutes will happen around 1pm.
