Kate Walters | Making your Mark | Workshop

October 25 @ 11:00 am - October 27 @ 5:00 pm

£350
Painting and drawing - with writing where prescient - inspired by time spent outside with the natural world. This course will involve an introduction to shamanic processes.

Making your Mark: drawing on, and being inspired by, inner impulses of your body

Painting, writing and drawing on bodily impulses, including memory, fantasy and longing.
This course will involve working with breath, music, sound, colour, mark-making, and poetry as some of our starting points.

Most humans draw as their first, primary means to record their experiences, ideas and feelings about being in the world. Artists use many forms of drawing/note-making to explore, set down and refine sensations, observations, and ideas about their work and their surroundings. Often, drawing/writing is the work. Having confidence in one’s ability to draw/work with words is invaluable.

This three-day course will take you back to basics and guide you through various techniques developed to improve your sensitivity and expressive range with your drawing and/or writing.

We’ll work with music, the breath, the body, poetry; – responding to rhythm, timbre, emotional colour; you’ll have access to a range of mediums, surfaces, and exciting starting points to show you what can be possible with drawing/writing. We’ll consider how other artists and writers employ drawing and writing in their practice. This will be a reflective, immersive course where you will learn about many techniques as well as a wide range of thinking about practice – from Eastern traditions to Sufi, Aboriginal, first Nations’ people’s thoughts and European perspectives.

The price of the course is £350.
