Pencils - F, 2B, 3B, 5B, 8 or 9B
Erasers - 1 kneadable eraser - looks like bluetack except you want a grey one and I will explain on the first night other types of erasers you might wish to get.
Drawing Paper - My favourite drawing paper is the Moleskine Art Collection Japanese Album. Now I don't suggest you rush out and buy one of these as they are expensive. The paper in it is
165 g/m. This is a very smooth paper and means you can get fine detail in your drawings. However, as you get more skilled you might like to treat yourself to one of these.
In the meantime, get yourself a Reeves Artist sketch pad, A3 or A4. These are 9gsm and a nice smooth paper. We wont be doing large drawings so the A4 would be plenty big enough.
Tortillion, Stump or Blending Pencil. - these are different names for the same thing, a rolled stick that is pointed at both ends and made of compressed or rolled paper. They come in varying sizes. A fine and a medium one will be sufficient.
I look forward to seeing you on the 5th of October. If you have any questions, please email me at:
