Saturday 31 July: Pattern Play Wall Hanging
Meet Hannah Surtees for a fun morning of drawing and making with some pleasant chit chat along the way. Following a simple process, you’ll be inspired by Aztec and Memphis patterns and the artists that draw from these styles, before creating your own unique 2D artwork and/or 3D wall hanging.No experience necessary, just an internet connection and some basic materials required. I look forward to welcoming you into the friendly Zoom class with a cup of tea in one hand and black marker in the other.
Materials for practice exercises and 2D Artwork:
• White paper or card
• Black marker
• Coloured markers, pencils or crayons
Suggested materials for 3D Wall Hanging:
• Stick from the garden or length of dowel
• Cardboard from the recycling e.g., back of a cereal box or corrugated card
• Black marker
• Coloured thread and/or wool
• Anything else you have lying around that you’d like to add: feathers, buttons etc
To add colour (but not essential):
• Posca pens, paints or coloured markers
