How have artists used familiar and exotic objects to challenge what we believe to be real?

Try it out for yourself in this still-life drawing workshop, inspired by Tacita Dean: STILL LIFE. Artist Norton Asbury will help you create your own drawings, based on a mixture of direct observation, personal interpretation, and invention.

The day includes a visit to the exhibition and opportunities to draw in a closed-off room in the Gallery.

Beginners are welcome and all materials are provided.
