Join Mark in association with:
Art Experiences TM
at his Studio at the iconic Spode Works at the heart of the Stoke-on-Trent culture revival. With its rich industrial heritage, the Spode site boasts a plethora of historical vistas which hark back to the Pottery capital heyday of the region. Imbibe the ghosts of industry past to bring out the edginess of the creative process.
Mark considers himself to be an ‘experimental’ painter’, approaching the canvas with the mindset of a sculpture. He uses a unique combination of contemporary materials to create powerful and immersive works which draw in the viewer captivatingly. Mark often works with plastic resins and has tailored this course towards helping students incorporate the use of epoxy resins into their own artistic practice.
This course is a chance to discover and incorporate new ways of working using various mediums. Mark will instruct you on various painting and resining techniques tailored to your needs. There will be some mixed media tuition also, so please bring any physical artifacts you would like to incorporate into an artwork. These can include jewellery, found objects and photography. If you would like to bring previous work to learn how to introduce a clear layer of resin, please feel free to.
