Coffee and Candles

Location:

Online Zoom Event

Date: Saturday 10th April 2021

Time: 10am - 12pm

Artist Amanda Clark-Price, once again, joins the Gems in the Dunes team to bring you an experimental painting workshop using just coffee and a candle! For those of you would like to try painting but haven’t been to the shops yet. Inspired by images of the shifting sands and skies of one of our most precious environments exploring different techniques, tones and contrasts.

During this workshop you will experiment with resist painting using different strengths of coffee and a tealight or candle, learn tips and techniques and produce a beautiful sepia toned painting inspired by the Sefton coast at Ainsdale.

This free, online, 2 hour workshop will take place on Saturday 10th April 10am - 12pm.
