    This event has passed Get tickets

    Event description

    As part of our Collection 100 centenary celebrations during 2024, we’ve invited four artists represented in the MAG&M collection to each present a masterclass.

    Join one or all four in this series of intensive workshops that will provide unique insights and access to the artists as they share their knowledge, skills and tips about approaches to the landscape, the figure and the still life.

    Each artist will talk about their work, demonstrate key techniques and offer discussion and guided instruction on the essential techniques of drawing.

    Leading our third masterclass is Hadyn Wilson with a session on drawing in relief. Hadyn has developed this idea and his unique methods over several decades, and says it has almost as much to do with theatre and set design, as drawing. Participants will be encouraged to conjure up their own simple narratives and present them in relief as ‘stage settings’ within a shallow frame (small cardboard boxes provided). You may like to bring an image of a room or interior to base your work on.

    Please bring all your own materials and refreshments.

    Suggested materials:

    • A3 Canson Paper: 3 - 4 sheets (incl. black, strong or slightly darker colours - not too light)
    • Any drawing medium you prefer - pls include white (coloured conte chalk works well)
    • Kneaded rubber
    • Scissors (if you have your own scalpel and small cutting mat, pls bring)
    • Selleys shoe repair adhesive (purple tube)
    • Workable matt fixative
