Ash Stalks and Oak Leaves

I’ll be in Birmingham this weekend running a drop in workshop for families as part of the Taking Time programme of events (see post below). Each living thing has specific individual characteristics and qualities of form, colour and texture. Here, ash stalks. World Beach Map We will be working with these and other natural found marks from fields, woods and heath to explore rhythm and pattern. Everyone’s individual design will be photographed and printed before being dismantled – a free and non-precious attitude to drawing and design work. A gallery of ideas will gradually build up over the weekend. I hope to bring you some images. The Waterhall Seminar Room, Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery Saturday 14 November from 11am Sunday 15 November from 1pm
