Developing Sketchbooks Online Workshop Supplies & Welcome video

  • Spiral bound sketch book – you don’t need to go too big.  I’m using a 15cm square book from Pink Pig Ltd – you can only buy these in bundles of 5 directly from Pink Pig but you can usually find something similar in most Art & Craft shops [& eBay/Amazon].  Circular holes for the spiral binding are best.

  • An individual hole punch available from Staples [search for ‘1 hole punch’] and Rymans PLUS a quick search on eBay and you’ll find one for less than £2.00!

  • Eraser/rubber

The rest of the elements can vary from this list – you don’t need to stick to it too religiously, there is a bit of flexibility here but the more you have available the better

Mark making tools: pens, pencils, graphite sticks, charcoal, chalks, oil pastels, oil bars, marker pen, tipped pen [or emulsion paint & a small brush could work]

  • Brushes, sponges or stamps

  • Paints, dyes, brusho inks, drawing inks – something of that kind.

  • A collection of found papers, possibly a few hand made papers of varying weights, an envelop or two, cartridge paper, possibly a bit of plastic or tissue.

  • Cutting mat, craft knife, scissors

  • Refillable Marker pens – I used to sell these, but there are only so many hours in the day! You can find them via Great Art I’m not on commission!!! [or you can fold over a bit of sponge and dip it in ink or paint to get the same effect]…ah just found another useful site

  • You don’t need to go crazy buying new stuff – you can use what you’ve already got, with a few extras to enliven your stash!Get it all together and you’re ready for the start of the workshop – see you soon, Dionne x
