Weekend courses in March


Jill Calder (Illustrator – www.jillcalder.com) and Rachel Hazell (paper artist – www.rachelhazell.com) have now held their annual creative weekend courses at the Hostel. This is now a regular event for Rachel and the second visit for Jill. Both courses sold out and were a great success.

Jill and Rachel compliment each other. They are experienced teachers with that special ability to both communicate their love of their chosen medium whilst making it accessible and achievable. Participants leave the courses with a wider knowledge than when they arrived, and, most importantly, with completed art-works of their own.

Iona is, of course, a particularly apt place to practice illustration, book-binding and personal mapping. It is a place of significances and paradox and this sense of place was clearly expressed through the thoughtful art-works of the participants.

Below are a selection of images from both groups. They are in no particular order but hopefully convey the creative dynamism of the courses and the fun had.
