This is a drawing workshop experimenting withg drawing techniques, scale and materials, exploring the theme of plants and gardens in the literal sense and the notion of the garden in its metaphysical and metaphorical meanings. There are no rules, we will make a collaborative work, with the freedom to draw, paint, cut out, make a 3D installation, and change or add to each other's work. See the flyer below which includes images of a previous similar project.

Following the workshop, if there is enough interest, we are planning an 'experimantal / work in progress / open studio' at Claremont Studios, the new Project Space in Kings Road, St Leonards in mid to late May.

 

10 - 10.30 coffee, tea, juice and acclimatization

10.30 - 12.30 freefall

12.30 - 1.30 lunch break

1.30 - 2.00 conversation - creating a collaborative work

2.00 - 3.30 - making it happen

3.30  - tea and reflection

 

This is a challenging and exciting way to work, breaking drawing habits and inhibitions, allowing you the freedom to explore new techniques and learn from each other's practices. The walls of the studio at the Beacon will be lined with large sheets of Fabriano paper. Blocks of graphite and charcoall will be provided, but bring or make on the day your own brushes or pens, and bring any other materials you might want to use such as pastels, ink, pencils, etc.. Please bring with you any text, poetry or visual reference you might be inspired by.

Following in from the workshop, if there is enough interest, we are planning an 'experimental / work in progress / open studio' at Claremont Studios, the new Project Space in Kings Road, St Leonard's in mid to late May. See http://www.claremontstudios.org
