Things to know:

  1. You don’t need to know how to draw,  this workshop is totally for beginners! If you DO know how to draw that’s ok too, we don’t cover “drawing” i bring along reference photos for you to work from so whatever your experience with drawing works in just fine – we learn pencil techniques NOT drawing techniques 🙂
  2. Majority of materials are included, you only need to bring a basic things and a drawing board (optional), I bring along all of my pencils, papers, other surfaces for you to work on. There are materials you can purchase on the day but its not required (I will send you out further information when you book). If you want you own pencils & a sharpener of your very own to take home with you consider purchasing a pencil pack with your workshop.
  3. We cover ALOT of information in these classes, these are Adults classes and NOT for children under 17yrs. We cover fundamentals and techniques in this workshop. I teach in a relaxed friendly environment, I also teach multiple ways to work with pencils not just my own personal style, so you will come away with a huge amount information and skills to use pencils in YOUR own way depending on what works for you!
