Cats with Attitude in Watercolour, Day 1


Start Date: 29 June 2019
Time: 10:00am - 4:00pm
With: Sharon Hurst
Cost: £125 (2 days) or £65 (1 day)


Join Sharon for this light-hearted look at the cat; both its attitudes and unique outlook on life. You will be
enjoying a few cartoons, maybe even giving your kitty wings or a witch’s hat. You will also take a close look at silhouettes and, for the brave, you can do this with black ink (Sharon will provide this if you don’t have any). You can even work with black paper…a green or gold eye looking out from the black with a hint of whiskers…just imagine the drama!

This is the perfect opportunity to bring along those boxes of pencils, InktenseTM or ink that have been in the cupboard for ages, maybe you are not sure how to use them, so let Sharon help you with your experiments.

The workshop will be full of fun and humour, with a few cat stories thrown in for good measure. (You may
be forced to look at photos of Sharon’s Furry Purrys!) Sharon is an experienced and very patient tutor, so
you will receive plenty of demonstrations and one-to one tuition.
