Art Workshop with Di Purser


You will have the opportunity to create your own piece of abstract art inspired by the museum collections. Di will guide you through the fun process of transforming a lifelike drawing into an abstract painting, using inks, paints and acrylic mixes.
During the morning you will explore different techniques and draw from exhibits in the museum galleries. In the afternoon you will get involved in the messier techniques and turn your drawings into paintings.

Di was born in Walsall, West Midlands, but spent much of her childhood in Ludlow. She completed a BA (hons) in Textiles at Loughborough University in 1971 and has had a varied career as both a lecturer, teacher and practitioner.
She has exhibited widely in the Midlands and Welsh Borders including themed group exhibitions and one man shows.
She has interests in Art History, townscapes, landscapes and hill and mountain walking, which is reflected in her work.
