Photographs documenting 'Drawing The Seasons - Studio Drawing' workshops, held at Jo Blaker's studio in Slaithwaite, in early November 2022.
In this 3 hour workshop, participants worked on collaborative floor drawings as well as producing their own piece on paper. The inspiration came from dried seasonal foliage from both the garden & the way-side. Processes explored included fragmentation, erasure & layering. materials included conte crayon, soft pastel, pencil & natural inks. The limitations of space in Jo's studio creates an intimate atmosphere & requires very small group sizes - which we think results in a very supportive experience for drawers of all levels.
