Mrs Potts' Place is a venue for Jennie Maziel's 'Sketchbook Club'. Jennie has given her approval for us to run the club on the first Thursday of every month. 7.30pm -9.30pm. This is not a taught workshop but a meeting place so people can come together and use tried and tested techniques. Jennie has fabulous, easy ways to create fun pages in a sketch book. You don't have to be arty, it's just therapeutic fun.
We have chosen 12 of her pages to create over 12 months. See dates and themes below. We provide the venue, lighting, heating, tea, coffee biscuits and you provided all your materials, such as paints, brushes, pens, sketchbook etc. These can all be obtained from Jennie's web page, an art shop or Amazon. You will also need to buy the lesson download from Jennie Maizel's website.
Mrs Potts' Place, will run this as a non profit, community event to keep the price low. We will just ask for a £3.50 contribution towards electric, drinks etc and the Lesson Download is £4. So a total of £7.50 per session.
There is no commitment to come every month.
Suitable for 13 yrs and upwards
Cancellation - No refunds will be given or exchange of dates.
How it works
Look below at the lesson pictures and decide which date you would like to come. Please see our online booking page to book your place: You will need to pay £3.50 per booking. Book your space.
Step 2 Buy the DOWNLOAD for the lesson or lessons you choose. These are £4 each from Jennie Maziel's website. She provides reference sheets, youtube video and instructions. You will need to print out the reference sheets at home. If you can print them in colour it will help when you come to paint.
This is the link for the lesson downloads or you can click on the pictures below:
We are very aware this is part of Jennie's livelihood and it is only right that the money goes to her, so we ask you buy each lesson per person and not just share one purchase.
Step 3 Go through the download, watch the youtube video etc and write a list of materials you need.
Step 4 You may have some of the materials at home but they can all be obtained from Jennie's web page, an art shop or Amazon. You will definitely need:
*black fine writer
*paints (She uses gouache, acyrlic and water colour - you don't need to spend much on these.)
*pencil crayons (poly chromos are great and worth the investment. Jennie sells a great pack at her online shop)
*a white gel pen.
Each week slightly changes so before you arrive, you will need to check via the download that you have all the correct materials. Mrs Potts' Place will be unable to provide any materials on the night.
