Drawing blindfold! An exercise from the recent drawing workshop at Studio 36, taken by Penny Somerville.
That workshop and the one taken by Marcus Wylie the following weekend were unusual and led to some inspirational work by participants. The poetry reading in the evening was well attended and enhanced by the guitar playing of Rupert Oxlade from Maker / Maker a shop and ukulele centre just round the corner from the Studio.
The workshop was taught by the very experienced Penny Somerville who was principal lecturer, teaching visual studies in Architectural Glass, paint, drawing and print at North Wales School of Art and Design. She has since run workshops at home and abroad for both children and adults. She lives and works in Sandford for most of the year, although recently she has been teaching in India.
The approach of this workshop was to encourage participants to enjoy, explore and discover the delights of self expression through drawing. Materials to be supplied by Penny.

An art & poetry workshop, images & words forum and a trio of poets performing in the evening raised money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
We had a really good open studios, and luckily no rain so visitors seemed to enjoy the garden, and rewardingly for Tamsin and Veronica to enjoy the studios, while the two artists much enjoyed meeting and talking to visitors!
