The Canson connection
As a UK Canson Ambassador my workshop on Saturday 15 august (1pm to 3.30pm) 'Moorland colours' is sponsored by Canson (the internationally renown paper company producing innovative fine art papers) so this gives you a fabulous opportunity to try out their brand new and popular Canson Mi-Teintes 'Touch' pastel paper which is absolutely great to work on.

Pip at the post!
You'll have the chance to work with some really great soft pastels into the bargain too with hand made pastels made by Pip Seymour (from Yorkshire) who sends his products all over the world.

Picture perfect ...or as near as it can be anyway!
Your reference to create your colourful expressive pastel from of Ilkley Moor I've taken myself with a quality camera and printed them as A4 for you to loan on the day so all you need do is turn up, have a fab time, learn loads of art techniques from me and go home with a superb and memorable experience and a great painting too!

Who can come?
You don't have to be brilliant at pastels either to come. This may be your first experience with pastels or you may be an enthusiastic artist with a desire to try out new materials and techniques. Whatever your experience, this fab workshop caters for you all!
