Tutor - Jill Carter

1-day workshop

Monday 16 September 2024, 10.30am - 4.30pm

Explore a reflective approach to playful and poetic visual storytelling, in response to personal journeys, life events and experiences.  Enjoy writing, drawing, painting and colourful collaging to create narrative rich pages, with processes aimed at enhancing inspiration, creativity and wellbeing. 

Jill says…'A journal or sketchbook is just for you, offering a space to muse on ideas, thoughts, and endless imaginative possibilities. The journaling process allows you to develop your unique expression, develop imagination, insight and personal well-being too.' 

All drawing materials and supplementary papers provided, although you will need to bring your own sketchbook, and some collage materials to personalise your work. 

Please wear clothes and footwear suitable for a studio environment, and bring a bag or portfolio for taking work home with you.

Suitable for all abilities.
