My Kitten Rolo - Colouring on Architects Parchment (Drafting Film)

Saturday 23rd October 2021
4 hours – 11.30am-1.30pm and 2.30-4.30pm
£40 per person. Max. 10 people.

Suitable for all levels

Parchment is a really exciting new concept for the coloured pencil artist.  Unlike working on paper, parchment is almost transparent and can be coloured on both sides.  It has been around for a long time and is popular in the States, but not often used in the UK.

Come along and have a go at creating your own masterpiece with twice RHS gold medal award-winning artist Janie Pirie.  Janie will show you how to use coloured pencils to get the very best out of them on this new ‘support’.  There will be group demonstrations as well as individual tuition throughout the day.  A piece of parchment will be included for each participant, together with an image to copy. 

This is a workshop where you will learn to colour on parchment.  It is not intended as a lesson in drawing.

Materials required:

Coloured pencils
Putty Rubber
Plastic Eraser
Craft Knife (Slice Tool if possible)
