My autumn programme is now confirmed! All of the workshops are held in SE19, in my informal, relaxed kitchen studio setting. All materials are included in the session price.
After half term, we’ve got some building work coming up, so I currently haven’t been able to plan sessions from mid October onwards.

The number of places for each session is limited, so early booking is highly recommended, as sessions can become fully booked very quickly.

NB Due to quite a few last minute cancellations, I’ve reluctantly introduced a 48 hour cancellation policy to allow me to plan and offer spaces to those on the waiting list. Any cancellations less than 48 hours before the session will require full payment of the session fee. Thank you for your continued support!

Adults’ Workshops

Friday Illustration Group

Friday 27th September, 12:30pm-2pm
Friday 11th October, 12:30pm-2pm
£8 per person (weekday special price)

Enjoy a relaxing, creative end to the week by taking some time out to explore a range of materials and illustrative techniques in a friendly, supportive environment.

 

Architectural Ink and Watercolour
Sunday 13th October, 3pm-5pm 
£15 per person
Explore how ink and watercolour can be used together to create architectural studies with character and charm. Starting with drawing warm-ups focused on 3D representations, you’ll move on to using photographic resources to examine details within a range of building styles, including country cottages and urban structures. The emphasis is on experimenting and trying out ideas, rather than creating one ‘final piece’ and everyone will be encouraged to explore their own individual style.
Includes all materials, a folder to store your studies in and a glass of wine / soft drinks.

I run adult and children’s illustration workshops in south east London and can tailor sessions to the needs of the group. Workshop attendees enjoy working with a range of materials, including pen and ink, watercolour, chalk, a wide selection of pencils and even gel pens! Sessions are fun, friendly and informal and have proven to be relaxing and inspiring…see testimonials below.

Illustration workshops are a great way of encouraging risk-taking and experimentation in an unpressured and supportive setting. Drawing utilises and develops a wide range of skills, including problem solving, fine motor skills and concentration…it builds confidence and it’s fun!

Please contact me for further details about upcoming sessions, or to book a bespoke workshop.


Praise for Suzanne Pink illustration workshops:
