5 Week Pen and Ink Drawing Course FRIDAYS 6-8PM Starts Friday 7th June
"A thoroughly enjoyable course and I've learned so much. Thank you for your instruction, patience and encouragement" - Cyndy
Using pen and ink you can create drawings full of confidence and life. Find your illustrative drawing style by applying techniques to a range of subject matter.
This is your chance to explore pen and ink techniques including:
Applying ink with a brush
Creating beautiful ink washes
Illustrating shape and form with fineline pens
Building textures and gestural marks
Combining techniques for more expressive drawings
A great course if you are looking to improve your drawing skills - pen and ink lines are permanent so you’ll quickly learn to make more confident marks and ‘go with the flow’!
After trying out new techniques you’ll work on a new project each week with wildlife, landscape and floral subjects to try.
All materials are included. Beginner friendly!
"I highly recommend this teacher, space and all her courses! Artspace is wondrous!" - Mab

She was recently shortlisted for Jackson’s Painting Prize. Recent exhibitions include The Senedd (National Assembly for Wales), The Riverfront Gallery, Fringe Arts Bath and Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester.

How to find us
Our Studio is based in Meanwhile House, just a 10 minute walk from Cardiff Central station. We're just off Curran Embankment. From Penarth Road take the turning between Big Yellow Storage and Kwik Fit and we're the first turning on the left.
Daytimes (until 6pm): The carpark outside the building is reserved for staff only until 6pm (including weekends) and you need a permit to park here. The nearest street parking is just over the bridge along the river on either Taff Embankment or Taffs Mead Embankment. This is charged with meters so do check signs but it is a very short walk from here to the studio. We are also just a 10 minute walk from Cardiff Central train station so easily accessible by public transport. If you do require parking on site we have two visitor permits that can be used by students with prior arrangement but visitor parking is limited and cannot be guaranteed.
Evenings (6pm onwards): The carpark on site is available to visitors from 6pm. If you do arrive early for your class we'd advise you wait with your car until 6pm just in case of inspection.
Access Our studio is on the first floor, accessed via a staircase. Please contact us if you have any access requirements. We will always do our best to accommodate but due to the restrictions of the building this is not always possible.
