Sketchbook Skills – Develop your Drawing

Four classes to learn new skills and practise drawing techniques

Wednesdays 26 January, 2, 9 and 16 February 2022
10am–1pm, optional afternoon sessions 2–4pm
This date may change, depending on the Covid-19 restrictions.

Each of these lively sessions will address a different theme, such as distance, perspective, symmetry, close observation, texture, and figure drawing. In the process, using several different mediums, you’ll hone your drawing skills and practise various drawing techniques – some familiar, some new. Working in a beautifully light airy space, you’ll get plenty of one-to-one advice from Marianne, as well as lots of opportunity to compare notes with your neighbours, always an informative option! Classes are easy-going but focused, as well as lots of fun, with afternoons spent practising the morning’s skills.

All sessions take place in Hay Parish Hall, Hay-on-Wye, HR3 5AB. Mornings run from 10am to 1pm  (including 20 minute tea-break). Book the full morning course for £96 (it is not possible to book individual sessions).

Each class continues with an optional afternoon drawing session, 2pm – 4pm, for practising the skills encountered in the morning, improvising your drawing techniques, or getting more individual advice from Marianne.

The full course (4 mornings and 4 afternoons) costs £152.


You will need to bring your own drawing materials, though Marianne may be able to lend you some if necessary. When you make your booking, you’ll be sent a list of what to bring.

Suitable for all ages and skills: begnners, improvers and experienced.

Covid-19 Update

It is a condition of booking that every student agrees to these Covid-19 Rules before attending any course.

Marianne is well aware of the anxieties around Covid-19 and the need to offer a safe teaching environment. Therefore, she has drawn up Covid-19 Rules and a Risk Assessment document that outlines the various necessary procedures for each day. Careful planning has gone into the design of these courses, so that on the day the whole class can relax and have fun.
