Spend the day drawing with Mrs Bertimus 4 or 5 November 2023

The Artist

Mrs B hardly needs an introduction - her workshops are always very popular! Mrs Bertimus studied fashion and textiles at Saint Martin’s School of Art and enjoyed three glorious years of making completely un-wearable garments.
She has taught in Art Education for over twenty-five years and loves sharing techniques and eating lots of cake in her workshops.
Mrs B paints, collages, draws and stitches and loves to weave in her daft little stories when the fancy takes her!


The workshop

Do you find drawing from observation a bit daunting?
Would you like to develop your drawing skills but feel nervous about picking up that pencil?

During this one-day workshop we will be responding to a range of inspirational, vintage objects, kindly loaned from the studio of Louise Presley.
This one day workshop consists of a series of drawing exercises that will be broken down into guided steps.
We will have fun exploring experimental techniques, designed to help you ‘loosen up’ and create unusual marks and motifs.
We will also ‘walk through’ the process of creating a representational pencil drawing, that suggests a range of tonal values and quality of line.
These techniques can then be combined in a variety of ways so that you can explore your own drawing practice.
