About the Workshop
Pen, Ink & Watercolour on Paper
Emily's workshop will focus on observational drawing, experimentation and play and will encourage participants to lose themselves in the process of mindful art making.
The room will be filled with a range of different floral arrangements to draw from and be inspired by.
WHAT WILL BE COVERED
In the first half of the workshop, participants will use a glass dip pen, ink and watercolours to explore different types of mark making and watercolour techniques.
The second half of the workshop will be devoted to consolidating that learning in creating a floral still life.
At the end of the workshop each participant will be given an art kit including their glass pen, a journal, a set of watercolours and some ink (not pictured) so they can continue their drawing journey at home.

SATURDAY 16th OCTOBER
Meet the Artist
Emily Van Der Molen
Emily is an artist, maker and seeker of visual wonder who sees the world through a kaleidoscopic filter.
She finds things like the iridescence hiding within a seashell, the rainbow swirl of an oil stain on the road, or a prismatic reflection cast mysteriously on a wall irresistibly magical, and squirrels away the imagery in her minds eye to later inform her visual works.
The media and techniques she engages in her work are vast and varied. Having been raised amongst strong, crafty women, traditional crafts play a proud role in her making, while a lifetime of making pictures and studying art bring a solid repertoire of painting and drawing skills to her creative table.
Most recently, having become custodian to a large, luminously wild garden, her more newest work has seen an explosion of floral imagery (and is responsible for her dubious pilfering of plant cuttings!).
Complementing her practice as an artist, Emily is also a passionate arts educator. Having co-established MAKE art school, she has dedicated the past five years to inspiring children and adults to connect with their own inherent creativity, given them confidence in their value as artists in their own right, and helped hush those negative voices that insist only an elite few are allowed to make art.
She continues to facilitate arts learning through classes, workshops and activations, so keep an eye out for updates.
