One of the strengths of EAST as a group is the fact that we make time to play , experiment and generally immerse ourselves in our practice.
We recently had a sketchbook development session with textile artist Amanda Hislop, who was our guest tutor for the day.
We experimented with mark-making using a host of different media and textures, playing with positive and negative spaces, ending up with plenty of inspirational material for our sketchbooks.
Amanda has many small sketchbooks that she makes from folding paper, that she showed us the process of. These are so compact that they can be taken out and about in a pocket with a minimal sketching kit of a few well-chosen implements to draw with.
I’ll let the images speak for themselves!
