Be inspired by the local dry stone walls, incredible geology, the lighthouse and friendly welcome. We will go out to take photos/draw or stay inside and draw from the wonderful views and artefacts in and around Kim’s colourful and interesting home.

You will create several drawings, which can then be made into printing blocks. We will print onto paper and fabric to create beautiful layered surfaces on which to stitch by hand.
