Dordogne with Iain Hodgkinson 2020
Iain’s course in Dordogne will include at least three days of painting and sketching ‘en Plein air’ around the beautiful valleys, rivers and vineyards of Bordeaux
The course will focus on a mixture of sketching and developing mixed media studies that can be combined with relief printmaking techniques of woodcut and lino cutting. At the end of the week in Dordogne, Iain will dedicate a whole day to converting the studies to create a final print or two without the use of a press.
Our stunning traditional French Maison on the outskirts of St Foy Le Grande, which itself sits on the south bank of the Dordogne river. This attractive walled bastide town still boasts a few of its original medieval houses.
The impressive Château de Montaigne which was once home to the famous French Renaissance writer Michel de Montaigne and Montcaret, with its Roman ruins at the Gallo-Roman Villa will be amongst the sketching opportunities destinations during the course.
