Drawing Horses workshop with Diana Hand on 29th September, 2018

Some of the work from the 2017 Drawing Horses group and a selection of Diana’s drawings

If you love horses and would like to learn more about drawing them,  I am planning a Drawing Horses Workshop, based on my book “Draw Horses in 15 Minutes”.   This is suitable for all artists from complete beginners to those with more experience.

I will demonstrate the “three stage” process of building a drawing, as outlined in my recent book “Draw Horses in 15 Minutes” published by Ilex/Octopus Press.  This will provide you with a framework to start with,  and you then have the rest of the day to work from your own ideas and images, or to gain inspiration from my library of books and photographs with my personal advice and guidance as desired.

The workshop will take place on 29th September, 2018  from 10 am to 4 pm in the Gargunnock Community Centre, Leckie Road, Gargunnock, FK8 3BJ, near Stirling.  Gargunnock is a beautiful rural location looking out across the Forth Vallery towards the Highlands in the north. Our studio space for the day is a perfect space lit by large skylights and open to the adjacent garden area if weather conditions are right.

Paper and basic drawing materials are supplied, but you are free to bring your own favourite medium. Tea and coffee and light refreshments are provided free, but please bring a packed lunch. The Gargunnock Inn is very close if you wish to visit for lunch (1-2).  There are 10 spaces for the class, and the cost of the day is £45.000 payable in advance. Parking easily available.

Come and share your love of horses and your enjoyment of making art.   PRE BOOKING ESSENTIAL



Comments from my workshop in 2017:

“A thoroughly enjoyable day … Diana had so much knowledge and a clear passion for horses… Co-students were nice people and I think we all engaged with the day positively” 

“The experience was creative, relaxing and tranquil, and Diana builds a confidence in experimenting with the materials and equine form” 

“Great fun and teaching, really nice people and relaxed atmosphere, and wonderful to have a class like this on your doorstep out in the rurals..”

Please contact me on if you can host a workshop, or would be interested in joining one during 2018 or 2019.
