Examining Ruskin’s clothing through drawing

Saturday 2nd March

This workshop offers the opportunity to examine details of Ruskin’s clothing through drawing. It will introduce participants to methods of examining and interpreting garments through drawing using accessible exercises to train the eye, building on Ruskin’s ethos of drawing as a means to understand the world. The workshop is led by artist Sarah Casey whose exhibition Ruskin’s Good Looking! will be on display in Brantwood’s Blue Gallery. The workshop also includes a guided talk of the exhibition demonstrating how the work has been developed using the methods applied in this workshop. The final section of the workshop will involve an introduction to Casey’s technique of drawing in wax used for the works in the exhibition.

Workshop costs £70 and runs 10am – 5pm
