This practical workshop invites you to explore traditional and experimental watercolour techniques. You’ll look at a brief history of watercolour and how artists in the Tate Collection have used the medium. These workshops coincide with the current¬†JMW Turner with Lamin Fofana: Dark Waters¬†exhibition.

Techniques learnt will then be applied to your own larger scale artworks. Over the course of the workshop, you will build up the introductory skills and techniques needed to get you started making your own masterpieces.

Examples of techniques include wet in wet, wash/graded, wash/variegated, wash, bleeding, negative painting and salt and wax resistance.

The sketching session includes materials to take home with you, including a set of Winsor & Newton: John Singer Sargent Watercolours, produced in collaboration with Tate.

This session is for adults aged 16 and over.
