home: event [ life drawing ]
We are constantly looking for new art prints, new artists, new designers, new print makers, new illustrators, new typographers and other creatives to admire and use their work to adorn our walls. We create gallery walls, look for originals in second shops and markets, read up on latest trends and often just fall in love with a piece and frame it.
Figurative work has long been popular but there are more modern styles of work emerging in the last few years and it’s strong trend being seen in the big name print houses and interiors stores. But how about having something more unique, getting creative yourself and trying your hand at a new skill.
Life drawing classes can be found in all the major cities and towns, in art schools, colleges, community centres, church halls… it’s always good to check local press for latest information
Explore life drawing and perhaps get to create your own art for your wall, discover a talent or just simply for fun and enjoyment and to then run off and buy somebody else’s work but appreciate even more the work and talent behind it.
Search the internet for classes in your area or work from home with photography and invest in a good tutorial book like Life Drawing or Life Drawing in 15 Minutes
home: event [ KANA workshop ]
Founded by Ana Kerin, KANA LONDON is a clay workshop with a difference. Rather than using a traditional wheel to create the pieces, Ana’s workshops teach you how to hand build.
With an array of workshops to choose from a you can find one that suits you. From a tableware taster session to a three week course, or something in between.
My approach to work is experimental and playful, as I never follow a procedure, and invent new recipes daily. I work with a unique mixture of clays and mix my own glazes, often turning my back on traditional ceramic practice. Hand building, rather than turning on the wheel, further emphasizes the individuality of each piece.
