Last month, I taught my first ever oil and cold wax workshop at the stunning Bullclough Art School and I thought I’d share a few photos of the weekend.
I met Nellie, owner and founder of Bullclough, over a year ago whilst on a painting course in Cornwall. She very kindly invited me to teach a workshop and show my work at Bullclough’s gallery, and so I set about creating a 3 day workshop as an introduction to the beautiful medium of cold wax!
On the first day, students set about exploring the beautiful grounds and creating images and sketches of the environment.
We had a wonderful time collecting found items from around the grounds and creating stunning, harmonising colour palettes.
“Attending with my mum, Mary, (87 and as gung-ho as you could wish) was fun in itself. But add the divine setting, fabulous food and fascinating company, then all we could wish for was a great tutor too: Karina Nixon was superb – constructive, clear and very supportive of all our varied experimenting with oil and cold wax.” – Rachel
The quality of work created by the students was really exciting; I loved seeing everyone get stuck in with rollers, pigments, tissue and scrapers, to create some truly outstanding and atmospheric work!
My lovely students! I couldn’t have wished for a lovelier bunch to teach my first oil and cold wax workshop to. It was such an inspiring and fun weekend!
