Landscape drawing - Peak District

Two day course held at the Moorland Discovery Centre on the National Trust's beautiful Longshaw Estate. Within walking distance to the gritstone edges, the course focuses on direct experience of the landscape. We'll be taking a walk out into the counrtyside no matter what the weather to gather photos and inspiration to draw fro and if the sun is out then we'll draw outside but otherwise we will return to the discovery centre with our findings. The course has an emphasis on drawing with charcoal and ink and is designed to encourage a very playful approach to drawing with these materials. Suitable for all abilities. £125 including art materials, tea, coffee and cake. Sunday 2nd October 2016 10-4pm Sunday 9th October 2016 10-4pm Booking essential, limited places available. Please email Tessa at


An unsual and inspiring day in the classroom. At these workshops children tend to get very messy and extremely involved with creating their own large-scale charcoal pieces. During the class the pupils will learn about various drawing techniques including form, tone and perspective. In past instances schools have taken the opportunity to expand the art class into learning about geology and the natural environment as part of the day.

£400 for a full school day. £200 for a half day. Please contact Tessa for availability.
