Learning To Draw Course


Price: Please enquire

With so many kinds of drawing skills and interests, Oliver offers a series of workshops that help you and your colleagues find your preferred way of mark making. This won’t be an ‘a b to c’ lesson in how to draw because Oliver often believes you have to make a mark first and then decide what to do with it.

Sometimes, having the help of someone giving a few pointers and perhaps some boundaries can quickly open up confidence, to believe in the uniqueness of a mark. With drawings underway, Oliver is always keen to offer suggestions on an individual basis on how your drawing skills might be used greater effect.

These workshops can be useful to the absolute beginner and to the very proficient creatives alike, because it’s about how one individually chooses to ‘take a line for a walk’. We all learn that way, and we get to keep it too.

Printmaking Skills Course


Price: Please enquire

How long have we got?
We could mono-print for an hour or so, or learn how to overlay multiple types of mono-prints, given a bit more time.
Drypoint can be a fast and rewarding activity. (from 2 hrs to 8hrs).
Woodblock and various relief printmaking processes (such as Collagraph) can work over a few hours.
Other forms of Etching will need one day plus to really get stuck in, but there are some quick processes in  the mix.
Oliver believes it’s often how the plate is wiped that makes it a “good proof”,  so once the plate is made, much fun can be had reproofing the plate with different variations of marks and inking effects. So time for proofing is well worth factoring in too.
