From Words to Views
With Gabrielle Lockwood Estrin
Saturday 1 June, 10 am-1 pm
£10 per participant Book
Inspired by the 13th-century Persian poet Rumi, this workshop will use words and specifically poetry as an impetus to explore visual structure, space and composition within a drawing. We will read a poem written by Rumi as a point of departure to create a still life set-up from which to draw. The ideas within the poem and the rhythm of the language will influence us to create a visual space within the still life.
Gabrielle Lockwood Estrin is an educator and artist, whose practice spans painting, printmaking and drawing. She teaches at The Royal Drawing School and has recently completed a Fellowship at City & Guilds of London Art School.
