14 September 2019, 10am – 1.30pm

Join us for a half-day drawing workshop and explore the Kettle’s Yard collection. The workshop will focus on Jim Ede’s playful use of objects, imagery and space and think about how this alters the way we look and give value to the overlooked and everyday through drawing.

Start by drawing in the House, followed by activities in the studio to develop the possibilities of your drawing and question the boundaries of drawing practice.

Lead by artist and lecturer Kimberley Foster.

Participants are invited to bring a small tool or utensil from their kitchen or garden shed.

£30 (£25 concessions), booking required

About Kimberley Foster

Kimberley Foster is an artist and academic currently undertaking PhD research within Art Practice and Learning at Goldsmiths, University of London. Foster studied BA Fine Art Sculpture at Brighton University, followed by an MA in Sculpture at Chelsea School of Art and has worked as a Senior Lecturer in Fine Art, Art Practice and Visual Studies for over 16 years.

She has worked extensively with exhibitions, collections as an artist and consultant since 2000 as one half of collaborative partnership sorhed. As a practice, sorhed focuses on the development and enactment of pedagogical art objects that focus on enquiry and interpretation.

Foster also sees the drawing process – in its broadest form, as integral to her work. Questions of truth and representation, decoy and metaphor play out though marks, actions and form as she explores the possibilities of what drawing can be. Through action, collaboration and writing she is interested in drawing on, drawing from and drawing out.


The Clore Learning Studio is fully accessible and can be reached by stairs or by lift.

There are accessible toilets on the ground floor and beside the studio.

Please note that the House is not fully wheelchair accessible. There are several sets of stairs in the House, including a spiral staircase. Please let us know if you would prefer not to use the spiral staircase and we can provide an alternative route around the House. Click here for further information about access at Kettle’s Yard.
