This course is held on Thursday 25th November at 7.00pm – 9pm (BST) and is suitable for students of all abilities. Students outside the UK are welcome!  

Whether you’re looking into being a greetings card designer, or simply want to make a card that you can send to friends and family for Christmas, this course will be a fun and encouraging environment to do it in. Using gouache, design and create a Christmas card from start to finish! We will explore using fun, bright colour palettes and an illustrative visual language to create a card guaranteed to make its recipient smile. 

We will work through a series of quick exercises at the start of the workshop to ease you into using the gouache and exploring different colour palettes. There will be a selection of reference material to choose from and fun drawing prompts to encourage play and experimentation. We will then take what we have learnt into a final card design that you can reproduce to give to friends and family.
