Workshop 1 - Patrick Hedges:  Scraper Board drawing
Sunday 4 March 2018 from 10am to 4pm

Scratchboard is a unique and versatile fine art medium.

We will be learning about different tools and different techniques.

We will also try to complete one small piece in the day so we can put what we learned into action.

About Patrick Hedges

Patrick says:

"I am a wildlife artist specialising in the medium of Scratchboard.

I was born in Africa, lived there for many years and I’ve returned often. I grew up with wildlife and art in my blood. I’m passionate about wildlife and this forms a large part of my portfolio, but I am also fascinated by the people of the world too and create many portraits from my travels."
