Pictured is the beginning of one of my Celtic knotwork drawings. They start from a pencil drawing, often involving a geometric base. Once hand drawn, the piece is coloured in pencil, with a little bit of gold ink along the way sometimes. With all the intricate detail and many layers of colour, an A4 piece can take between 40 to 60 hours to complete.
If you would like to see the finished version of this drawing, then it will be on display as part of the Prudhoe Art Trail between 9 and 23 July. The centre point for the trail is Prudhoe Library, where you can see one piece of work from each of the 24 artists taking part in the trail. From this centre point, you can find out in which Prudhoe business each of the artists is displaying their work, and then visit the different businesses and artist displays.
My work will be in the Prudhoe Community Hub at No. 61 Front Street.
More information will be added to the Prudhoe Community Partnership website nearer the time.
If you would like to learn how to draw Celtic knots for yourself, then you can book a one-to-one Zoom workshop with me, and we’ll get you started drawing Celtic knotwork in no time!
