Richard McVetis Design Workshop 13 September 2019 10:00-16:00
Richard came and spoke to the Guild in July 2018 and transfixed us all on his design process and interpretation. Your feedback suggested you would welcome him returning to give a workshop, which he has kindly agreed to do. In this workshop participants will be able to research and design a new work shaped and inspired by a moment in time. This could be a memory of a person or place, something from the everyday. The focus is on design, allowing participants to create a new work in their own style and telling their own story. There will be number of mixed media exercises to explore and create your own personal language.
Materials: £8 payable on the day to Richard
