You will spend the day creating a range of your own drawing tools and then use these to make a series of mixed media collages and drawings.

The aim of the workshop is to explore and experiment using mark making techniques so you can be playful, free up your drawing skills, push the boundaries and beyond! We will discover the delights of making marks on a variety of papers with different pigments and explore how using bleach can totally transform them.

Mark-making and Mixed Media Workshop at the Platform Gallery

Just a little peek at what we got up to this weekend at the Platform Gallery and Visitor Information Centre! What a super day….such talented creative people… thankyou for coming everyone!

Watch out for new workshop dates! Hoping to run one of these in Lancaster very soon!

Will keep you posted!

Lovely feed back from participants … 

“The mark marking workshop was a great experimental session, which took us back to the very basics of creative practice, reminiscent of art and design in my youth. The tools we created were made out of recycled goods and became fun tools to use in a range of methods and processes. A full day of experimentation in a perfect location and environment with lots of inspirational chats, tea and biscuits.”

Cheryl-Ann Glover

“Thank you…. for the course yesterday. I really enjoyed it, and am pleased to have not only ideas for future uses of the techniques but also some pieces to work into!”
