Drawing to See: Sarah Simblet Workshop Requirements................

If you have been lucky enough to acquire a place on one of the Sarah Simblet Drawing Workshops in 2013 (all workshops are now fully subscribed), the following is the list of materials required. If you don't have the necessary this will give you time to start acquiring your stash.


Materials needed:

  • A plentiful supply of LARGE sheets of paper (ordinary quality drawing cartridge in mixed sizes, ideally A3, A2 and A1 or equivalent)
  • Several rolls of inexpensive paper (e.g. brown parcel paper, wallpaper liner or similar) for creating large surfaces for experimental drawing
  • A notebook and pen
  • Pencils, erasers, pencil sharpener
  • Masking tape and cellotape
  • Scissors
  • A long stick, e.g. 1.5m (one and a half metre) garden cane
  • A box of Willow Charcoal and one stick of compressed charcoal
  • Three marker pens, in colours of grey tones of your choice, designer grade, for example Copic markers.
  • A bottle of Chinese Ink (if not available, use any kind, e.g. Indian or Calligraphy)
  • Two small basins (e.g. kitchen bowls to hold water and ink while working large scale) 
  • A dip pen with a drawing nib
  • A LARGE soft brush (artists paint brush, or house decorating brushes or a large make-up brush could be used)
Wear comfortable work clothes. Some classes may be messy!
