Information & Support

Please bring a 2B pencil and an eraser. Please also bring whatever pens you may like to use such as a fine liner, biro and/or fountain pen. If you are short of pens, you may find it useful to purchase a fine liner from an art shop or stationers. These can be waterproof or soluble and come in different line thicknesses. Also, a black or blue biro and fountain pen plus cartridges, or dip pen and bottle of fountain pen ink, will be ideal. In terms of brushes, you should source a size 6 watercolour brush and a small set of watercolours.

In addition, please acquire some watercolour paper (280gsm pad or sheets). Suitable visual resources will be available; however, you may wish to bring your own. Please see the current Brockenhurst College Adult Leisure and Learning brochure for further details.
