Lets Explore Mark Making
Join us at Kingborough Women’s Club (KWC) for some experimentation with making marks!
Explore making marks with different media such as ink, paint, graphite, pens or oil sticks.  Try using sticks, skewers, feathers, cotton buds etc to make your marks. Choose one medium and explore all the different marks that can be made with it or try a variety of media and see what marks can be made with one implement.

These exploratory pieces could be used for stitch ideas, collage, sketchbook page backgrounds or just about anything your creative minds can think of!

Feel free to work on your own projects if you prefer. You may like to finish off your Challenge piece (due 21 August), or work on your Lightbox or Out of Hand entries.
