Charcoal Workshops

An Introduction to the Subtlety & Drama of Charcoal

Many people think charcoal is just for sketching, planning or perhaps a few last minute details.

Of course charcoal is useful for these things, but nowadays little 'final' work is produced using this medium. And many might argue that work in charcoal is not painting.

Well it might not be painting..... but it sure can produce wonderful art and personally, I think it's greatly underrated.

Charcoal can be used very effectively on its own and can be fabulously combined with pastels, inks and paint into great work.


The 2 1/2 hour workshop is designed to introduce the variety of mark and tone that can be achieved using both willow and compressed charcoal.

It is designed round landscape work - though of course charcoal is a wonderful medium for portraits etc.

It is not suitable for children, but might be useful for GCSE or A level students.
