I am happy to announce that I will be running Drawing Workshops at the ArtScience Museum for their Dinosaurs: Dawn to Extinction exhibition which opens later this month!

If you are interested, you can get your ticket early to visit the exhibition and make sure to choose one of the dates where I will be running the workshops:

Dates: Sunday 2, 9  & 23 February, 9 & 23 March, 6 & 20 April

– Sketch-a-Fossil:

Bring fossils to life by drawing them in detail. Observation drawing . Make your piece stand out by placing it in a pre-historical landscape (optional collage). Ammonite or Fossilized wood will be our inspiration.

Timing: 45 minute workshops at 12.30pm and 1.15pm

– Sculpting Fun: Shells and Bones:

What better way to understand a fossil than to feel it in 3D? Carve your own sculpted shell or bone out of soap, and bring your replica home. Children under the age of 8 require adult supervision. Ammonite or T-rex claw will be our inspiration.

Timing: 45 minute workshops at 2.30pm and 3.15pm
