Join Helen Thomas for a mark making workshop focusing on the plants in the new Hepworth Garden which was designed by Tom Stuart-Smith. The workshop includes a short Garden tour by The Hepworth Wakefield’s cultural gardener Katy Merrington.
Working in monochrome, exploring line, texture and tone using a range of dry and wet media including pencils, ink, gouache and improvised drawing tools on paper.
The focus is on the process and experience of seeing through drawing, and exploring mark making, rather than creating a finished artwork.
At the end of the workshop you’ll come away with a small hand-made concertina book of your drawings, as well as several pages of sketches / drawing exercises, up to A1 in size.
This workshop has been rescheduled from September 2019.
Half of the allocated places are offered to Members at the discounted rate of 25% off, sold on a first come, first served basis. Become a Member.
