Jo Waterhouse At Hope And Elvis... (Part One:)

Yesterday was a very happy day indeed.
Myself and my good friends went on a 'Collage and Composition' workshop taught by the very talented Jo Waterhouse.

Here are some examples of her amazing work...

I love this picture of Baba Yaga's house.

We started the workshop with a couple of fantastic warm up exercises.
First, we drew our face, while holding the paper ON our face!
It was really funny, and a very interesting way to draw...

It was great to meet up with so many lovely friends too...well, hello there Miss Betty Lettice!

This is my self-portrait...Hmmm...I think I was a little bit over enthusiastic!

Next, we had to directly cut a paper side profile of our next door neighbour.
Jo demonstrated and made it look so easy...
but it was pretty tricky to do!

Here's my attempt, (sorry Sam!)

We then started to prepare papers and experiment with mark-making, exploring marbling,
mono printing and lots of other exciting techniques...

My mate Debs, doing what only Debs can do!
Work it girlfriend!

And as more and more beautiful papers emerged, it was suddenly dinner time...

It was utterly delicious, thank you Magie!
(You are a Brussel's sprout magician!)

I have taken so many photos that I think we shall return after dinner with the next post...
Hope that's ok with you chuck.
See you soon.

I'd love to hear your thoughts, just a minute and I'll put the kettle on.
Custard cream or bourbon?
