I will be at the William Morris Gallery this weekend on Saturday 25 October 2014 from 1-4 pm running a FREE family workshop event – “Drawing with Indigo”as part of my residency at the gallery. For me drawing is all about making marks. This workshop uses stitch and string to resist the natural indigo dye. The marks produced are often unexpected but always beautiful!
The Big Draw working in partnership with the Family Arts Campaign runs from 1 October to 2 November 2014 across the UK and in twenty other countries. It’s part of the Campaign for Drawing , launched in 2000 by the Guild of St George, a small charity, to commemorate its founder, Victorian writer, philosopher and artist, John Ruskin. The Campaign still upholds Ruskin’s belief that drawing helps us to understand the world and respect it more. The Big Draw events are for those who love to draw, as well as for those who think they can’t!
