Draw animals, objects, interiors, the figure, fabric and furniture designs or book illustrations with expert support - choose a workshop from the descriptions below before you book your place. No experience necessary.
Designer, artist and furniture maker Colin Parker invites you to scribble, sketch and study the museum's collections and interior to find ideas for fabric patterns, coloured glass or furniture components, and for artworks in their own right.
Helen Denerley's well-known animal sculptures grow from observation, understanding and hundreds of charcoal drawings. Starting with quick bold responses to the museum's menagerie, you can develop a finished work using Japanese ink brushes or charcoal.
Explore ideas of accumulation and time with international landscape artist Kate Downie. Kate will guide you from individual to collective drawing, inspired by the Grand Gallery and its iconic objects, ending in a short drawing performance.
Alan MacGowan, figurative painter and author of The Language of the Body, will help you to explore drawing the figure. Work with a life model in the exceptional surroundings of the museum.
Create your own book character based on the creatures in the museum with multiple award-winning children's book illustrator Catherine Rayner. Explore different techniques and textures, and discover how to give your character expression, personality and individuality.
