Line and Wash Watercolours with John Harrison

 

If you like John Harrison’s trademark line and wash style then come and join him in a workshop. The day will include demos, exercises, outdoor sketching, ink drawing and the application of washes to create a loose, lively painting of iconic Yorkshire Dales featuers.

Reference material, exercise handouts and watercolour paper are provided but please bring your own packed lunch, paints, pencils, pens and sketchbook. Refreshments with home baking will be available during the day.

Broadrake is in a stunning location and there is no shortage of subject matter – dry stone walls, barns, limestone outcrops, viaduct, trees and fellside slopes. The venue is upstairs in a recently converted barn.

John is Yorkshire born and bred, proud of his home county which provides the inspiration for much of his work. He specialises in line and wash, a style which superbly captures the beauty and atmosphere of Yorkshire’s landscape, towns and villages.

Green Wood Hurdle Gates Workshop @ Broadrake
Sep 7 @ 9:45 am – 4:30 pm

Note – Price £170 for 2 people plus £20 for materials: includes lunch and refreshments.

When Phil first started coming to Broadrake it was to teach willow weaving but he also enjoys greenwood working. A couple of years ago he taught us to make the cleft ash hurdle gates we now use to keep sheep out of the barn entrance. These have been admired by passing walkers so we started running this hurdle making course in 2020.

The price is for two people working as a pair to make one small hurdle gate. You will start with a log, probably ash, and learn how to split it. Then you will shape the rails and uprights, first of all using carving axes, then finishing with a draw knife on a shave horse. Mortise and tenon joints are used to assemble the hurdle which is then secured with hand made wooden pegs.

Willow Workshops – Make a willow Seed Pod @ Broadrake
Sep 15 @ 9:45 am – 4:30 pm

Willow Seed Pods

A variety of weaving styles and methods can be used to fill in the overall shape of a poppy seed head formed from curving willow rods attached tightly to the support stick and gathered together. The tepals can then be woven or left open – there are no rules and there is opportunity to explore different methods. Two or three pods can then be positioned together to add height and interest into the garden border, or smaller ones in a pot. It’s also possible to fill the pod with sheeps wool to provide nesting material for the birds in the spring.

Phil has been coming to Broadrake for a number of years now. He has a gentle, relaxed teaching style which always proves popular with students.

He lives in NW Cumbria where he grows his own sustainable willow for basket-making, garden structures and also bird sculptures, all popular workshop topics.
