The 2 hour demo and 4 hour workshop with Matlock Arts Society had proved to be very popular amongst its members. 27 artists had booked for the workshop with as many again wanting to attend the demo.
The room was almost full and it was lovely to see so many artists all eager to learn new techniques and to explore, (some for the first time) the use of acrylic paint. There was a lovely friendly atmosphere with everyone working really hard to complete at least one piece of work in the afternoon.
This was just a taster workshop with Matlock. At least two more workshops have been pencilled in the diary for next year. I shall be running acrylic and mixed media workshops which will involve the use of a wide variety of media and collage materials.

50% of the artists had left before I managed to charge my camera phone. Here are some photographs that reflect the high standard of work produced in under 4 hours ..
NB some of this work is not 100% complete
