Workshop: Reading, Stealing and Hoping
Sarah Pickstone
Part of Guest Series Eye to Pencil Studio
Wed 12 Oct 10am-4pm
This workshop led by Sarah Pickstone will be a lot of fun, referencing literature and other imagery to create individual and collaborative drawings. WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION
We will read a selection of texts together (although no knowledge of English is required), and gather imagery from various sources. Throughout the day we will make a large-scale collaborative drawing and also work on our own studies, combining individual and collective working approaches. The aim of the workshop is to connect with the less analytical side of observational drawing and to develop confidence with improvisation and happy mistakes. Materials are included.

Guest Series Format: We will be joined by guests from different fields: art, ethnobotany, anatomy, and photography each of whom is committed to drawing. The format for the Guest Series will be for each guest to give a talk about how drawing relates to their own work and field, then at a later date they will lead a day long drawing workshop based on their practice.

Wednesday, 12 October
10am-4pm (1 hour lunch break)
Tickets are £50. Note: STUDENT/UNWAGED discount of 33%. Use the code: student-33 at checkout.
