Making your own brushes

Do you ever get the feeling that your students are getting a little too precious about their work and working with what’s comfortable and predictable? They have their perfect pencils, their favourite paintbrush and it’s all about control, control, control. Work becomes tight and less exploratory. All accidents are disasters. When expectations match results, but go no further, then maybe it’s time to start thinking about running a ‘Making Brushes’ workshop.
