Leon Patchett is an environmental artist working at the Stables in Cromarty. He is a graduate of Central / St Martins College of Art & Design where he completed a B.A.Hons Degree in Ceramics in 1990. He has been a practicing artist for the past decade and now works out in Cromarty, a small peninsular town north of Inverness in the Highlands of Scotland. This beautiful and dramatic region of Scotland has inspired a new direction in his work. A simple walk on the beach presented a readily available free material to begin a new approach in the studio.
The workshop will take place in a relaxed atmosphere at The Stables Studios on Cromarty.
We will make small sculptures from wood & natural materials found in the local environment. I will demonstrate & guide you through some basic techniques to assemble your own piece of art. All are welcome. If you can use a small cordless drill you can join in.
