Drawing with artist Julie Merriman 

Drawing is hand-made, responsive and reflexive. The emphasis of the workshop will be on the experience and process of making marks.

Instead of usng the word 'draw' we will talk about 'moving the pencil', however feels comfortable. We will make a series of images focused on each participants hand, looking also at colour and the effect it has on the senses.
