The Travelling Sketchbook

Sat 1st & 2nd June. £200

Course Tutor. Hugh Dunford Wood

Drawing encourages you to slow down and to live in the moment.  Drawing is a form of storytelling.  Your sketchbook tells your own story.  Your images will make the texture of your memories and you will recall intrinsic details, sounds and smells maybe, or even stray thoughts that come to you while drawing.
You will soon have a richer collection than any photo album and this will help you quickly relive past experiences.  A sketchbook transforms you from a holidaymaker into a traveller.  Even if we visit the same place on the map, each of us will discover different places.
And when you return home you will see your surroundings with different eyes.  You may see the trappings of your daily life as if for the first time and realize the drawing opportunities there.  You will find yourself stopping to notice what your life is made up of and the riches you have that bring meaning to your life.  Draw them.

How a day works.
The day starts at 10 am and finishes at 4.30pm but the kettle is on from 9.30 so come and have a coffee and meet up.
All materials are included (unless extra ones requested). If the weather is likely to be warm we might suggest you bring a sun hat and some insect repellent.
Lunches are included in the cost of the course and always vegetarian and are cooked using our own ingredients grown in the veg plot wherever possible. If you have any special dietary requirements please let us know when booking your place.
Tea, coffee and cool drinks are always on offer throughout the day.

If you need somewhere to stay – check out our accommodation page!
