This workshop is tailored to your topic or students’ interests; with over 3,000 objects in their unique Handling Collection, their Learning Officers will select a variety of artefacts for your students to sketch and photograph.

From traditional art and textiles from around the world to natural forms, students will have a fantastic opportunity to develop their still life sketching skills and form ideas and concepts around their own work. Students will have the chance to handle and closely study the objects, repositioning and arranging them as they choose, whilst exploring new textures and forms and being inspired by the stories behind them.

Please bring your sketchbooks and pencils with you.

This session is not available on a Tuesday.
