27th January 11:00am to 1:30pm

Location: West Elm

This workshop, run by Handmade Creative Workshops, is perfect for people who have very little experience of drawing or want to gain more confidence in their technique.

Using a selection of pencils and a pad of paper, you will be introduced to a variety of techniques, materials and applications to give you an understanding of tonal and linear drawing. During the workshop, Nataliya will teach you how to compose and draw still life, landscape, flowers and portraits and give you new skills which you can take away and practise with confidence at home.

Please bring along with you an A3 pad of paper for drawing or sketching, with paper thickness no less then 150g and also a set of pencils including HB , B, 2B, 4B, 6B, 8B and an eraser.

During this relaxed and informative workshop you will not only learn new skills, but also meet new like-minded people and enjoy the opportunity to be creative, all with the full support of an expert artist and teacher.

The workshop includes lots of tea, coffee and cake to help you along!

Nataliya Zozulya is a professional and practising artist, who graduated from the National Academy of Fine Art and Architecture in Kiev and worked as the professor assistant for the Fine Art Department there for more than 15 years.

“Nataliya is such a great teacher.  I had no idea I would be able to produce a drawing like that.  It really made me want to learn more.”
