16 | 09 Gwyneth Hibbett – Pencil Gothic

Saturday 16th September 2023, Felindre Village Hall, 10am – 4pm.

This workshop takes a familiar tool – the pencil – to practice and create gothic letter shapes and use them in combination with a variety of different artistic effects.

The versatility of pencils and their range of “hardnesses” give the calligrapher scope for shading and many different textures, which can take your lettering in
different directions.

Soft graphite greys give a subtlety that sometimes the harsh black ink of ‘blackletter’ doesn’t, and the ease of adding some pencil embellishment can re-ignite a love of Gothic.

10 | 06 The Mariner’s Compass

Zentangle® Inspired Art Sheila Murray

Saturday 10 June 202310 am to 4 pm

Felindre Welfare Hall, Felindre, Swansea, SA5 7NA 

After our very enjoyable Zentangle® workshop last year, Sheila is paying us a return visit.

Following The Zentangle® Method, we will create a piece of art with a maritime influence known as The Mariner’s Compass.

During the creative process we will hand draw and use various ‘tangle’ techniques to enhance and decorate our compass design. Our finished piece will be flourished with cardinal pointers to the North, South, East and West.

We will also learn more about the history of the Mariner’s Compass and how it has been used for many centuries.  Don’t worry if you didn’t attend last year’s workshop – this one is still suitable for everybody.

Tea and coffee will be provided but please bring your own lunch.
