About the Event
This workshop will let you into a secret... Charcoal is amazing!
First, you'll work with charcoal maker Jo to prepare your own artists' charcoal. You'll explore different materials that you can use to make charcoal, prepare them for the fire, and then cook and cool them so you can use them later on.
After lunch, you'll work with visiting artist Alan Grieve to explore different drawing techniques, using the charocal you've made and some provided by our sister social business, Soul of Fire. It's an opportunity to use your hands and your mind and get creative!
Workshop programme You'll arrive on site to start the workshop at 11am. All wood and tools are provided. The day finishes by 4pm. Please bring food and drink for the day with you.
