Assemblages

The Friday meeting of the Halifax Art Society was very challenging. No pencil and paper, no brush and paint but a glue gun, ‘bits and pieces’ and some work from our recent ‘marbling session’.

Our demonstrator for the morning was Sue Cordingley who gave us a brief talk on ‘Mudlarking and Beachcombing’. A demonstration of what to do with your finds followed. Showing us pictures of her work jogged us into thinking ‘yes I could do something like that’. It was amazing how one thought led to another and we all came away with creative work that held memories of the past.

On the 16th February we are going to complete our assemblages.

Landscape workshop

Friday’s meeting of the Halifax Art Society was a ‘follow up’ of the previous week’s acrylic demonstration by Paul Talbot-Greaves. Some of the members were new to the use of acrylic and the advice that Paul had offered us was very useful. Some members preferred to do a landscape in their favourite medium. At the end of the meeting there were many pleasing paintings for the members to be proud of.

On the 9th February there will be a ‘Talk & Workshop’ titled ‘Mudlarking and Assemblages’.
