Mark My Words - a drawing and writing workshop

Sunday 19 November, 11am to 1pm

Cost: £5 (pay on the day - booking in advance is essential as places are limited)

To accompany the exhibition Tangled Threads, the artists from Flax will be hosting a series of workshops.


Join Barbara Wright (artist) and Fiona Pervez (writer) for this two-hour drawing workshop inspired by the exhibition's theme of tangled threads - in this case, bringing together distinct artists in two discrete areas to make one piece of art. 


Working in pastels, charcoal and other graphic media we will be creating an abstract piece of work in response to a reading as part of the workshop's creative process. The story, written and read by Fiona Pervez, is called Winter Solstice - set in Castlerigg Stone Circle it should provide ample opportunity for you and your imagination to create something unique. No drawing experience is needed as you will be guided by Barbara. The emphasis is on fun and freedom of expression in this unusual and uniquely challenging workshop which combines creative writing, drawing and imagination! Bring an apron as it could get messy!


Suitable for ages 12+ (under-16s must be accompanied). All materials will be provided. Places are limited so we recommend booking a place.
