Come and join RAMP (Real Art Make Print) and mixed media artist Viola Hortova in sketchbooking workshop which will get you back into your daily creative routine, and intuitive art making, while helping you fill your sketchbooks and art journals.

This workshop will introduce you to new techniques and art exercises and support you in your creative expression as a way of day-to-day reflection. You will experiment and explore different points of view on art, add in some mindful mark making, intuitive drawing, colour sessions, and in general make it playful.
