'Painting Without Brushes' workshop with artist Rob Leckey

Fri 15 Jun, 10.30 - 3.30pm

Learn to paint like renouned Shropshire artist Rob Leckey with this hands on workshop taight by the man himself!

Rob works primarily in acrylic paint and ink, collage and mixed media and during the workshop he will share his expertise and unusual techniques of applying acrylics with rollers, pieces of shaped wood, card and any found materials.  He will also demonstrate to participants how to create collage materials out of torn or shaped tissue paper, newsprint, and magazine illustrations and how to add details with oil and chalk pastels.

Like many artists, Rob's inspiration comes from the subject matter. He finds experimenting with colour, media and techniques is very rewarding. He says "Realism is way down the list of my intentions. By the very nature of how I apply the collage, paint and inks I can never predict the outcome. Along the way many accidents happen, interesting colours and unique shapes emerge"
