    TWW: An Airbrush Workshop with John Harrison

    The Weekend Workshop is digging out itís airbrush cleaners and thinners and heading to the Scythe and Teacup for a weekend of painting and learning. Our teacher for the weekend is none other than myself, John Harrison, I am an award winning UK painter who has travelled to and competed at some of the toughest painting competitions across Europe, I have extensive experience using airbrushes and have been taught by some of the very best.

    I shall be teaching the very basics of using your airbrush from how to maintain your airbrush, apply smooth basecoats to both army painting and display painting techniques, I will take you through precision exercises to really hone your abilities and you will receive constant guidance as your apply your newly learn techniques and skills to the free miniatures you shall receive. It is with no exaggeration that I say that the skills and knowledge you will acquire arenít being taught any where else in the UK.

    The workshops costs £95 for both days, included along with your tuition is your free miniature, lunch and also hobby support for as long as you want it after the workshop, no doubt questions will arise once you continue to apply your new knowledge and we will be here, continuing to give feedback and advice, helping to push your progression! A discount of £15 is available to anyone who is willing to bring along and share their own compressor.

    The workshop will run from 10am until 6pm, the workshop will be broken up into 4 main chunks, morning and afternoon session over the 2 days, the morning sessions will be more focused on the theory and ideas of what I will be teaching, with an hour or two in between demonstrations to get some painting done, the focus on the afternoon sessions is for you to sit down and get a good few hours painting in so you can really get to grips with what is being taught. I will be there to give you feedback and reinforce the ideas, theories and techniques, give you advice how can improve your technical skills and answer any hobby related question you can think of! When the day is done we usually head out for a few drinks and something to eat, Liverpool is a great city full of wonderful pubs and eateries.

    Items that you will need to bring with you:-
    Paint Brushes
    A Lamp (or two) with a daylight bulb
    Palette (ideally a wet palette)
    A scalpel or X-acto knife
    Fine grit sand paper/file
    Pin vice, drill bit and brass rod
    Plinth or stand
    Whilst it is not essential to bring your own compressor, it is encouraged.
    You will have access to compressors with a 1/8thĒ hoses throughout the day.
    Donít worry if you cant bring all of these items or you forget some as we will have some spare that you can lend.
    For enquirers and further information or to book a place on the workshop, gives us an email, pm or contact us on Facebook or use the contact form on our Get Involved page

    Getting to Liverpool

    By Plane
    If youíre flying over for the workshop you will want to fly to Liverpool John Lennon Airport and then travel by bus into the city centre, cheap flights from many European destinations can be found from both Easyjet and Ryanair.
    By Train
    If you are traveling via train, Liverpool Lime Street will be you destination, the station is approximately 5-6 minutesí walk from the venue, cheaper train tickets can be found at The Train Line, train tickets in the UK can be very expensive, so make sure you book early.
    By Coach
    The cheapest option for travel is traveling via coach, this can often be half the price of a train ticket, Norton Street is even closer than the train station and is literally down the road from the venue. coach tickets can be bought from National Express.

    Sadly I wont be able to make it to this one but with all the discussions on airbrushing lately I thought this thread deserved a boost forwards. Having attended a wws before and already booked for another I am well placed to be able to say anyone fortunate enough to make this is truly in for a treat. If you can afford it, have the time and you seriously want to improve your skills you need to be on this.

    Wish I could get a class like this here in my area. I feel like there's tons I could be doing with my airbrush that I'm just clueless about.
