Dressed in her trademark colours of red, white and black, Rachel gave SLLA members a one day
workshop on abstract designs and large letters using a flat brush. Starting with examples of her
wonderful abstract designs, Rachel explained to participants how they would be using a minimal
palette to create maximum effect in a piece of work. Demonstrations were followed by hands on
practice exploring lines, textures and overlapping forms and everyone was fascinated to see what a
difference a tiny application of red could make to a piece of work. Lots of interesting pieces for the
show and tell at the end of the day and what had been a fascinating workshop.
A full account of this workshop by Lindsay Munro will appear in the next edition of The Inc.
