Starting right from the beginning, this course looks at the importance of lines, how to use them and how different weights of line affect a visual image.

It goes on to explain relative tone, looking at how to express tone in pen and ink.  This is the place to start if you are a beginner, or if you are new to pen and ink.

Refreshments and lunch will be served in the Mill dining room and are included in the fee.

If you require accommodation before or after the course, please contact us and we’ll try to help.

Before You Attend

What to Bring

  • Cartridge paper (140gsm or above, A4 size) either loose sheets or in a sketchbook
  • Pencils (2B, HB)
  • Rubber
  • Set of black drawing pens of varying thicknesses (at least one thick and one thin) these need to be pigment fine liners (they need to be non-water-soluble).  I would recommend any of the Faber Castell Pitt artists pens, or the Sigma Micron, or Staedtler pigment fine liners.
  • Coloured pens: in a variety of colours and thicknesses (whatever you have to hand).
  • Small set of watercolours (I personally prefer schminke but any set will do).
