Flower Painting Workshop with
Debbie George at Clem’s Garden
If you have a fondness for flowers and painting, then this one day workshop with Debbie George could be just what you’re looking for!
Debbie George is a well-known artist, based in Holmfirth, whose work is inspired by her passion for flowers and the objects with which she surrounds herself - from ceramics to fruits, feathers and stones. Her paintings have been exhibited in galleries nationally, and she has a strong following worldwide.
Not only is Debbie a West Yorkshire neighbour, she worked with us to design Clem’s Garden’s logo; so we’re thrilled to host this workshop.
Working with the ancient medium of gesso, with which she primes her panels, Debbie will teach you her technique of building up layer upon layer of paint to create a wonderful luminosity and depth. She then scratches into and through the layers to emphasise form. By doing so she expresses subtle tonal and sculptural qualities.
Date: Sat 4th May 2019
Event Name: Flower Painting with Debbie George
Venue: Clem's Garden, Briarcourt, 28 Occupation Road, Lindley, Huddersfield, HD3 3EE.
Time: 10:00 - 16:00
The workshop will start with a stroll around Clem’s garden, to pick the flowers which you will arrange in your favourite mug or jug to create your still life. Debbie will then gently guide you through her creative process as you paint your own piece to take home.
No experience needed and tools and materials will be provided - just bring a favourite mug or small jug.
Lunch and refreshments are included.
