Abstract Landscape with Catherine MacDiarmid
This workshop will provide an opportunity for people of all abilities to explore drawing and painting without the constraints of it “looking like something”. Through abstraction comes the ability to learn more about what paint can do. Explore mark making, composition and tonal / colour balance, as well as different starting points for inspiration, utilising the wonderful surrounding landscape for inspiration.

Catherine MacDiarmid is a local artist who has exhibited widely, including exhibiting in the BP Portrait award for young artists in 2001/2. She is an elected member of The Lakes Artists Society and appeared in Sky Portrait Artists of the Year 2014, 2018 and 2019. As well as completing private portrait commissions, her work is collected internationally. Catherine works from her home based studio in Kendal. Her artwork focuses on the human form, exploring expression and movement in both drawing & painting.
The workshop fee is £70 includes a tasty 2 course lunch with home baked bread and cake and refreshments throughout the day. We like to finish the day with a cup of tea and slice of cake. Eat outside or enjoy lunch by the wood burner.
This workshop will be at Cowshed Creative, based in a traditional converted Lakeland barn at Browfoot Farm. The art studio is a stunning open plan space with plenty of room to wander outside and take inspiration from the amazing Lakeland landscape and environment of the peaceful Kentmere valley. Make it a special break and stay on the farm.
