I think we all know such times when we want to start something new and don’t know where to start. Every now and then we come to a point where we need inspiration that hopefully leads us to new ideas. But often it’s a huge challenge to find a new direction.

In this course I will show you my starting points and I will guide you step by step through  different techniques from working with mark making tools such as pencils, pigment sticks, graphite through to acrylic ink, paper collage and paint. We’re letting the materials and techniques develop and enjoying the process of making. 

And we will use all these explorations to create a gorgeous concertina book. You can use this as a source of inspiration for your future work.
