Nope, this title was most definitely not my idea, but rather the suggestion of our friend and teacher Elaine Nash who led us in another fun workshop yesterday, demonstrating different techniques using ‘crinklies’ i.e. cling film, cellophane, bubble wrap etc to produce interesting and unique textures in our artworks.
We were also introduced to ‘Tonking’, which many of us had not come across before, but Elaine assures us is a bona fide technique (if you’re not sure have a look at https://makingamark.blogspot.co.uk/2010/07/tonking-and-henry-tonks.html). So we all had a messy old time practicing and creating some interesting pictures.
Unfortunately, not too many of us managed to finish off our creations entirely in the time so they are still works in progress. But below are two brilliant completed pieces together with a couple of other lovely pictures created by members recently.
