‘The Seeing Hand’ – Series of One-Day Drawing Workshops with Dr Alli Neal

Upstairs at the Chapel

Friday 30th September 2022, 10am-4.30pm

Intended for anyone who has ever picked up a pencil and wished that they could really draw. These practical workshops will look closely at different approaches to drawing, building the confidence and skills you need to use drawing in your own practice. A real journey of discovery into the process of drawing and mark-making. The workshops are also fun.

Friday 22 April  THE LANGUAGE OF DRAWING – only marks on a surface

Friday 20 May  OUTLINES AND  EDGES OF THINGS – the importance of edges and how to draw them

Friday 17 June  DISCOVERING FORM – we draw in 2 dimensions but the world is in 3 dimensions. How does that work?

Friday 30 September   LOOKING AT THE LIGHT – light makes the world visible, but how can we draw it?    MAKING THE ORDINARY EXTRA ORDINARY – what things can we draw?


Dr. Alli Neal left her job as course leader for the BA in Fine Art at the Hereford College of Arts to complete a PhD on contemporary drawing practice. She is now concentrating on developing her own drawing and painting practice.  

Basic drawing materials are provided but you may wish to bring your own drawing pencils, charcoal and soft rubbers.

A full day with Chapel lunch and all refreshments £90 per workshop. Includes basic drawing materials. Students enrolled in the workshop will be able to buy drawing materials from The Art Shop at a discount. Booking is essential as places are limited. Please contact either The Art Shop or Chapel.
