Details

TUTOR
Becky lives in Dundee, and previously studied art at Edinburgh College of Art and at the Royal Drawing School in London. Her work is rooted in drawing which she uses as a starting point for making textiles, ceramics, installations and video. She explores memory, the body and storytelling and is interested in how digital technology has changed how we collect and look at images. She has been awarded residencies in Ireland, Finland, the Netherlands, at Hackney’s Space Studios and in Scotland at Dumfries House, Embassy Gallery and Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop. Becky has taught at the Royal Drawing School, House of Illustration, Barbican (London) and Hospitalfield (Arbroath).

PICTISH STONE DRAWING

Looking at images of pictish stones, we will explore surfaces, textures and ancient imagery, we will be making drawings based on Pictish stones, thinking about carving and experimental drawing techniques

We will start by collecting textures by making rubbings using the graphite frottage technique, of surfaces in the room and outside to explore experimental ways of making a graphite drawing. We will then learn to make free-hand 'drawings' out of card, using scissors. Placing these under sheets of paper and on textured surfaces, we will begin to build up a sense of drawing on rock to each produce a standing stone drawing.

Please note, these workshops will need a minimum of 6 attendees to run. If the minimum subscription is not reached, the class will unfortunately not go ahead.
In the event of cancellation, we will notify the bookers email up to 4 days before the event.

Age range: Between ages 12 years and 16 years
