Join vibrant illustrator Beau Brancick for a free art workshop in deconstruction poetry and embroidery as part of First Thursdays Late Opening Nights.


Illustrator Beau Brannick will lead this free evening session exploring embroidery and poetry. Collecting and cutting text from existing printed papers you will form a poem and learn embroidery techniques to embellish it to create your own tactile artwork.

This workshop is run on a drop-in basis so no booking is required. Suitable for all levels of experience.

Free with an admission ticket purchased on the same day.

About the artist Beau Brannick is a queer, London based illustrator whose practice is predominantly hand embroidery and illustration. Themes in her work mainly centre around folklore, mythology and poetry that highlight issues around LGBTQ+ and mental health concerns related to her experience as a queer woman living with depression and anxiety.

In conjunction with First Thursdays Late Opening Nights the Estorick Collection and Estorick Caffe will be open until 21.00
