Join Helen Thomas for a mark making workshop based on plants in The Hepworth Wakefield Garden. The workshop includes a short Garden tour by The Hepworth Wakefield’s cultural gardener Katy Merrington.
You will work 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 workshop focuses on the process and experience of seeing through drawing 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.
