    WHAT: Exploring ‘Wax Resist’ drawing/painting techniques using oil pastel and inks with Deborah Clarke.

    In this workshop we will follow a step-by-step process that enables you to experience the technique of ‘wax resist’. Though this requires drawing (with oil pastels) and painting (with inks) you don’t need to be good at either to enjoy the process and create satisfying results. For more experienced artists you will find this a useful addition to your repertoire of skills. It is particularly useful for creating the ‘texture’ of our landscape. Materials are supplied but do bring an apron.
