There are a couple of places left on the Angels and Icons course I am running at The Hearth on Sat November 16th and Sunday November 17th. You can book through Horsley Printmakers and the course costs £110 for the weekend.
On this course we will use images of angels, icons, the Virgin Mary, old fashioned holy
cards to create your own iconic pieces of art. They will make a stunning decorative feature
in your home at Christmas or anytime. You can transform old Christmas cards and found
images into richly textured and layered art redolent of Italian altar pieces or Mexican
shrines. Mandy will show you a number of surface decoration techniques in association with
some easy table top printmaking and collage with lots of “bling” thrown in too with use of
gold leaf and other patinas. This course is suitable for complete beginners or those
students who revel in experimentation and exploration of a mixed media approach to art.
