Materials to bring:

  • Paper: 1 sheet of Blue Haze or Australian Gray Colorfix Pastel Paper. 50x70cm.
  • Pastels: Students may bring as many colours of artist quality pastels as you have, Rembrandt is a good brand to start with…
    you can use Pam’s pastels for a $35 fee payable to her on the day.
    You will need a good range of orange, reds and yellows plus darks for this workshop.
  • Backing Board: Make sure that this a smooth surface eg MDF or plywood padded with plenty of sheets of butchers paper to make it quite spongy to touch. Ensure your padding doesn’t create ripples on the surface. Pam has boards that can be purchased on the day. Please phone 0418 943 814 a few days beforehand and let her know to bring one for you – $20.
  • Bristle Brush: This is to brush away the unwanted pastel. A cheap school paintbrush is good.
  • Willow Charcoal: Willow charcoal is soft and easily removed from your paper. It also blends exceptionally well with pastel.
  • Bulldog Clips
  • Tissues
  • Paper Towels and Rags
  • Glassine Paper: 1 sheet
  • BYO cup for morning tea.

Please contact Pam on 0418 943 814 if you have any worries.
