About

We will start this workshop by going on a short walk with Issey Kang, focusing on the “macro and micro of looking”, using one piece of paper to draw our surroundings, and another to draw objects. Once we are back in the studio, these drawings will be used to create a collaborative scene, with objects populating the drawings of our surroundings, becoming markers of what we saw on our walk. Issey’s workshop with us will approach a psychogeographic exploration of place through drawing. Materials are included. *Note: STUDENT/UNWAGED discount of 33% Use the code: student-33 at checkout Access: The studio is on the 1st floor with no lift BIO: Issey Kang is an artist based in London, she graduated from Chelsea College of Art last year. “Sculpture is at the forefront of my studio practice with undercurrents of drawing and writing. Using objects from city landscapes both concrete and natural: birds, gates, street lamps and stars form connections between time, seasons and the cosmos. The visual references, metaphors, narratives and emblems which comprise the nexus of my work, echo a world ordered yet unexplainable. Aiming to encompass a range of ideas delineated, but not defined. What interests me is the myriad of possibilities and occurrences of life-present and past, life’s complexity, diversity and contradiction.” Instagram: @isseyyyk Format: Our series of Thursday Evening workshops will focus on extending drawing through low-tech, low cost, DIY techniques. The creatives leading each workshop are young and emerging, yet each is working in a strong and accomplished way with their approach and materials. Curated by Alex Heard. Who: Anyone who is interested in drawing or who draws but would like to try out new materials and techniques centred on drawing.
