Where: The Stables Causeway, Cromarty IV11 8XS

Part of:
Visual Art Workshops

Join our international artist-in-residence, Kuzana Ogg, in opening your eyes to the freedom and creativity of ‘experimental drawing’. Using a range of household objects and natural items you will learn to communicate mark, atmosphere and image using ink and pencil. You’ll expand and sharpen your personal visual vocabulary whilst broadening your experience of drawing to include methods of collaboration and experimentation with a range of materials.

A really fun and different way to spend your Sunday afternoon!  Open to all abilities.

This is the first of two workshops over two weeks.  You can attend just the one or both as the content is different in each.  Find out about the second workshop here.



The class will consist of:

  • Introduction
  • Preparation of tools using your found items
  • Creating a dictionary of mark using varying pressure and spacing; using ink to create atmosphere and an image
  • Review and discussion

Participants will need to bring:

  • 18x24 sketch paper
  • B pencils (2 per student) & sharpener
  • Scissors
  • String
  • Cardboard
  • Glue stick
  • Duct tape/ packing tape
  • Anything that can be constructed into a handheld drawing tool, e.g.: stamp (bottle cap, thread spool, old shoe, cut vegetables (mushroom, carrot, etc), sponge, string, leaves, branches, seed pods, brushes with parts cut out, hardware parts, cardboard, toothpicks, candy wrappers, plastic bags, rubber bands, paper doilies, lace, toothbrush, cleaning brush, steel wool, scrap yarn and ribbon. Bring as much as variety as you can.
