Venue: Online

Dates: This workshop ran on Saturdays for five weeks from Saturday 11th September 2021 until Saturday 9th  October 2021.

Workshop Information

Course Outline

Over five sessions you will design a hand-painted wallpaper and make a small-scale painting of it, which you will fit into a simple pop-up scale model of the corner of a room. You will paint an A4 sample of your wallpaper on the type of canvas used for this purpose by professional mural artists and learn to use two of the brushes most commonly used for wall painting. We will discuss the history of both hand painted and printed wallpapers.

This workshop will be run by the highly experienced Creative Dimension Trust tutor Sarah Hocombe



Students must report for group teaching at 9:30am. Classes will finish at approximately 4pm.
