£25 per person (per session)

Join local North East Illustrator Rachael Spiers for a guided 3hr workshop encouraging you to play with the idea of drawing in a friendly and relaxed setting.

Switch off and engage in a series of playful exercises that challenge the idea of “proper drawing”, instead celebrating observational illustration without judgment or criticism. 

Inclusive for all, from total beginners to established artists, 

During this workshop:

  • The artist will assist participants to explore their creativity through experimental drawing techniques using found objects in a still life capacity to challenge conventional thinking surrounding traditional methods of illustration.
  • Providing access to connect to a greater sense of wellbeing, in an unplugged environment amongst like-minded individuals encouraging an evening without interruptions from common daily vices 
  • Encourage individuals to challenge preconceived notions of what art means, especially within a gallery setting whilst creatively exploring their individual practise in a structured workshop
