Workshop Training Series 2017

downloadPottery Drawing Day School – Saturday 18th February

Led by Jane Russell, this course provided the basic conventions that are recognised in archaeological illustration necessary for producing images in publications, whether you ink up the final drawings, or use computer programmes. Delegates looked at whole pots, sherds, decorated and plain pottery, and decided on the best way to give the maximum information to the reader.

25607Flint Drawing Day School – Saturday 22nd April

Led by Jane Russell, the day helped those who wish to prepare lithic illustrations for publication and those who just enjoy drawing flint tools. In the class delegates drew the tools accurately in pencil in preparation for later inking up by pen, or by computer programmes, highlighting the ripples and ridges of the lithic tools, and producing a three-dimensional impression.

This winter sees the first of the CBA-SE’s new annual training day series, which for 2016 will focus on ceramic identification and interpretation. Run by local experts of various periods, including Louise Rayner, Jacqui Pearce and Luke Barber, the sessions will include a general introduction to ceramics analysis, followed by four period-based workshops (Prehistoric, Roman, Medieval, Post-Medieval), which will vary in location across the south-east.
