We have been continuing our bi-monthly workshops at the Oriental Museum. Our workshops are informal, fun and give an opportunity to try something new - this may just turn out to be your new hobby.
In July Wendy introduced acrylic painting. This is a really good medium to start your painting journey. The workshop introduced simple paint mixing to acheive a painting with shades of one colour.
In September Suzanne continued the painting theme introducing the techniques of batik, the use of a wax resist to create patterns by layering successive layers of resit and colour to produce intricate works of art. The images below give a flavour of the wide variety of designs created by the participants.
Our next workshop on 5th November will be based on glass-design and will be led by Alison. Further details can be found on the Oriental Museum website.
