Workshops // Coming up // Experimental Drawing with Gum and Ink
26 October

Experimental Drawing with Gum and Ink

Join graphic designer and artist Dave Pentin to learn a little-known image-making technique which creates beautiful marks and unexpected images via a process combining control and chance in equal measure! 

The session involves: a demo of the approach by Dave; attendees each building up an image through layering ink and gum Arabic; a simple process to reveal what lies beneath; a final discussion of the potential of this method. 

This workshop is part of StreetDraw24, raising awareness of and funds for St Petrocs’ work with Cornwall’s street homeless. 

Materials included. All levels welcome. Booking recommended. Bring your own lunch!
