Big Draw

Jerwood Space, London
1 Oct 2016, 1-3pm

Selected artists from Jerwood Drawing Prize 2016, Richard McVetis and Bruce Ingram, will run practical drop-in drawing projects that are suitable for all ages as part of The STEAM Powered Big Draw Festival.

In his workshop, ‘The Drawn Thread’, Richard McVetis will work with participants to explore the enormous scope and versatility of drawing through stitch. Come along to create textures and patterns by working a stitch in different threads, playing with scale and spacing, and combining mark-making techniques. The workshop will encourage an experimental approach to stitch that draws on the imagination of each participant.

Bruce Ingram’s workshop, entitled ‘Kaleidoscopic Leaves’, will look at the process of drawing through collage. Working with black and white photocopies, participants will transform an image of a leaf, creating individual colourful designs. Artworks will explore themes of natural form, decay, camouflage and habitat.

This event is free to attend. Booking is required via Eventbrite.
