Venue:

Waterston House, SOC Headquarters

Colin Woolf, one of the artist's currently exhibiting in the gallery at SOC Headquarters, will demonstrate the traditional art of painting with pin-feathers during the afternoon.

Colin first became aware of this ancient practice when painting Woodcock. Depicting this magical bird using their own pin-feathers sounded like a crazy challenge but one he could not resist. Over the years he has refined this skill to suit his own artistic pursuit and foster his love of this particular species.

No booking necessary, just drop in to see him at work.
