with Kate Measham

I love to draw almost anything, with almost any materials.

A still life encourages you to push boundaries, explore, experiment, take risks, and enjoy the process.

The process is all.

This will be an exciting day of drawing open to anyone of any standard. We will work hard and have fun. Sometimes we forget to have fun.

What to expect in this workshop

We will look at a number of different ways of approaching a still life. In an effort to keep enjoying the drawing we will be moving the still life set-up, moving ourselves, looking at things from a different angle, working quickly, working slowly, trying different materials, trying things we think we can’t do, and thinking about drawing.


Please bring lots of different drawing materials. I like to raid the children’s drawing equipment at Tesco’s and The Works. Surprise me.
