Ruth Issett Workshop

This week, our students enjoyed an exhausting but thoroughly inspiring two-day workshop with the Queen of Colour: Ruth Issett.   Ruth has so much knowledge, and is so very generous in sharing it, that everyone produced exciting work!  They seemed surprised by their own ability, but the students showed that they have the individuality and the creativity to succeed!Ruth Issett workshop 2013

They certainly demonstrated that they have the necessary application too, as the room was sometimes as quiet as a Welsh mountain top, with everyone delving into pools of Golden Yellow and Lemon Yellow, Magenta and Scarlet, Cyan and Deep Blue, using dyes, acrylics and Markal sticks.  The results were delightfully varied and had oodles of design potential and everyone gained in confidence and ideas.
