Develop your drawing skills and techniques with our artist led drawing day.

Respond to themes of body and light explored by Antony Gormley and artists in our collection.

Start the day in the House collecting sketches from the objects on display and learning about how artists within the Kettle’s Yard collection build up layers of tone and depth in their work. Back in the studio, experiment with manipulating light and shadow to create drawings inspired by the collections. Try out different mediums and surfaces such as inks, dyes, homemade pigments, light boxes and projectors to generate ideas for longer projects in the afternooon.

Tickets are £80 (£75 concessions) including lunch, booking required.

Suitable for all abilities.

Concessions apply to full time students aged 16+ and those receiving income benefits.

Please let us know of any dietary requirements in advance of the workshop.

Find out more about the artist

Rachel Daniel is an artist and researcher whose specialist area of practice is drawing. Through her work she experiments with different, playful approaches to drawing, from creating giant sketches of tiny objects viewed through microscopes to site specific drawings using only found materials to working with musicians to produce soundscapes scored by doodles.

She is particularly interested in the relationship between drawing, medicine and the human body. She has developed several community art projects in which she works with patient groups, medical researchers and hospital staff to create collaborative art works.

Rachel is currently based at Dove Street Studios in Norwich, where she is working on a PhD exploring the relationship between drawing and medicine. She regularly exhibits her work both locally and in exhibitions across the country. More information about her practice can be found on her website.
