Katrin Eagle talk on wool artistry

This month on Thursday October 27th, 7:30pm, at Herne Farm Leisure Centre, Petersfield.  £2 for guests.

Katrin is a wool artist and designer who moved to Petersfield two years ago. She will be talking about how her work has evolved through various areas of design, focusing on the processing of wool by hand for use in spinning and weaving and the use of dry felting techniques to create pictures.

There will be lots of materials, sketchbooks and examples to share with those who want to have a go at trying needle felting techniques.

Bill Pullen- Illustrated Talk on Abstract Painting

thumbnail_img_0018Thursday 29th September at Herne Farm Leisure Centre, Moggs Mead, Petersfield, GU31 4PY, from 7.30-9.30pm.

There has been a change to the PACS programme this month. Katrin Eagle has moved to the October meeting (27th) and Bill Pullen has moved to the September Meeting (29th).

Bill will talk (with illustrations) about abstract painting and its development over the last 50 years or so. Beginning with Minimalism, he will talk about subsequent evolutions and approaches, with particular reference to American & British painters such as Twombly, Stella, Hodgkin, and Davenport. Concluding with a consideration of where abstract painting is now, (with, for example, British painters such as Cecily Brown and Christopher Lebrun), there will also be thoughts about the unique value of making paintings, with some ideas about what we mean by “abstraction”.

This promises to be a great evening so do come along and bring your friends. Members free, non members a small contribution of £2 entry fee.

Demonstration: Max Hale-Drawing in Preparation for Painting.

max hale blonde portrait LR

Thursday 28th July , 7.30-9.30 at Herne Farm Leisure Centre, Moggs Mead, Petersfield, GU31 4PY. 

Max gained a Fine Art Degree at the Harrow School of Art. He then became an apprentice illustrator for a London studio but after a few years, he returned to his first love-painting. The post impressionist’s mark making and bold handling of colour has greatly influenced Max’s work. Currently, Max exhibits his paintings, writes for magazines and teaches art to adults.

During the first part of the evening Max intends to talk about his work and influences followed by doing a portrait of one of the members of our group. Do come along and learn more about how to use drawing as a basis for painting.

Everyone welcome. Free to members, £2.00 for non members.
