Join one of Sydney’s finest sketch artists, Sid Tapia, for this 3-hour workshop where you’ll explore the fundamentals of using the leading sketch markers in the industry, Copic.   

Copic Markers are considered the best in the biz… initially developed in Japan, they are now the largest and most versatile alcohol marker system in the world.  The unique brush nibs are individually handmade, colour is consistent, and they can be used on a wide variety of surfaces such as paper, wood, fabric, glass and more.  Come see what all the fuss is about!  Explore the markers favoured by artists, designers, and illustrators worldwide.

Regardless of your experience using Copics, or other similar sketching markers, you will learn everything about these amazing tools.

You’ll receive a brief intro to the Copic line, what’s offered, and how the tools are used.  Learn about the types of markers, colours, how to refill inks, nibs etc.  The possibilities with these markers are ENDLESS.  Sid will break it down in easy steps to understand how to shade, blend, highlight, to create your own masterpieces.

Come bringing existing sketches, or start new.  You’ll have plenty of time to experiment with the markers, and get comfortable using them.

Everyone will leave with their own Copic starter kit, featuring sketching markers, blenders, and mulitiliners, to be able to continue their masterpieces at home 🙂
