Drawing Workshop                                   19th August 17.00-19.00

Draw your own narrative from the exhibition. Through mark-making and drawing participants will explore narrative, illustration and composition - creating a concertina book inspired by the exhibits. Literally tracing their own pencil line across the landscape of the show, participants will be encouraged through line and mark to use the exhibition as a starting point for new imaginings. Led by illustrator and CSM tutor Joanna Layla, participants will each create their own concertina book drawing inspiration from the show to delve into brave new drawn worlds.                                                                                                                                                               Punch Opening Party                              20th August 17.00 - 20.30
