Ink & Reed: Capturing the moment.

I run workshops using pens made from reeds collected locally from the riverside. Using these pens and a select few brushes I teach people to find their own auto-graphic way of mark-making to capture energy of the scene. From this we then move to creating a balance composition looking at tone and principles of Notan (a Japanese understand of positive and negative space).
