Workshop 5 - 12.30pm
Knitwear Illustration Taster
Tutor: Natalie Warner
During this short class you will pick up some tips for illustrating your knits using pens and pencils. You will be drawing from still life samples, and you are welcome to bring your own knitted items or work from some provided by the tutor. By the end of the class, you will have practiced some techniques for capturing texture, which you can develop in your own time, or move on to a longer drawing or illustration course. Complete beginners are welcome, as are those with more confidence in their sketching skills.
We will provide paper and pencils, but you may prefer to bring our own sketch pad/paper and drawing materials; this is so that you can continue drawing after class has finished. You do not need to spend lots of money on art materials, but if you bring only one pencil, make sure it is at least an HB, preferably 2B. H pencils will not be soft enough for drawing. You are also very welcome to bring both pens and pencils for small experiments with mixed media. This is intended to be a fun class that brings out your creative and expressive side, so allow yourself to enjoy making marks on the paper!
