With so many of us taking up new skills during lockdown or brushing off old ones it seems like the perfect time to run this workshop as we are so often asked if we can run a drawing class.
In Drawing for Beginners you’ll be guided step by step by professional artist and award winning tutor Jay Nolan-Latchford. This workshop will take you through the very basics of drawing from choosing the right paper, pencil and subject to completing several worksheets. You’ll be guided step by step through sketching, shading, proportion and even perspective. Suitable for absolute beginners you’ll discover that with a few simple techniques you’ll really enjoy the simple pleasure of picking up a pencil, opening up a sketchbook and being able to draw. All equipment will be provided and you’ll learn some basic drawing skills and pencil techniques. There’ll be plenty of opportunity for demonstrations as well as 1:1 time.
The Where Inspiration Blooms Wellbeing Festival
We set up Where Inspiration Blooms two years ago as a space for people to learn something new in an inspiring natural environment. When your mind and hands are focused on learning a new craft, it can allow you to feel a state of flow, which has similar stress relieving properties to practising mindfulness, meditating or being in nature (something we have both felt has been incredibly helpful during this time). We believe that craft, nature and gentle wellbeing activities have a huge role to play in helping us all to move forward from the lockdown period and in this festival we hope you will find something which appeals to you.
Safety & Security
During these times of social distancing please rest assured that we are taking all the recommended steps to ensure maximum safety. For the duration of our Wellbeing Festival all our workshops are taking place in a very large conference room inside our next-door neighbours main building at Chartridge Lodge Hotel.
The room is huge, has high ceilings, plenty of windows and will allow us to set up tables 2 metres apart from each other. We know the government guidelines have reduced the 2 metre rule but it is so important to us that everyone feels safe and comfortable, especially with our festival being all about inspiring people to do things to enhance and support their wellbeing. We strongly believe that maintaining the 2-metre distance is the right thing to do. We will also be putting in place many other safety measures.
We will be asking all of our guests to come into the building wearing masks, which they can remove once they are inside the room and we will be providing hand sanitisers on each work station and when you enter the building. A full list of all the bits we are doing will be sent out to you on an email a couple of days before the workshop.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to The Barn.
