I’m really excited to announce that I will be leading a new evening drawing workshop popping up in different fun venues across London. The workshop is called ‘The Mark Makers’ and will be ran by myself and Becky Noy.
The aim is to make the workshop fun, and non-stuffy, and a fun opportunity to spend the evening drawing and learning, using still life. We want to give a new way of interpreting the traditional medium of still life, that you perhaps were forced to do at school, but incorporating exciting props, and fun exercises to help develop drawing skills. The ticket for the event will include a glass of booze, and a mini curated kit of materials to take away to get you drawing at home.
Becky, who has a background in making and sourcing props will spend time building an exciting modern still life which serves as a unique focal point as well as a drawing focus. While I will guide you through the workshop and the steps needed to work on and develop drawing skills and create your own work.
You will hopefully have a super fun evening, and leave with some great original artwork to take away, as well as a kit of materials and illustrated tips sheets for drawing at home and a thirst to learn more. The classes are great for all skill sets, whether you’re a master mark maker or a total beginner.
Our very first workshop is taking place at Lock Studios, in Haggerston. On Tuesday the 15th of March. (Lock Studios, UNIT 1, 66-68 De Beauvoir Cresent, London N1 5SB; a short walk away from Haggerston overground station…) running from 7.30-9.30pm.
