Join local visual arts duo Hipkiss & Graney to create a series of magical woodland inspired collaborative drawings. Focusing on micro-organisms and plant networks, families can experiment with various creative techniques and processes.

Inspired by Bill Woodrow and Richard Deacon’s current exhibition at Ikon, which reveals the artists’ collaborative process, families work together to create a new artwork, combining responses to ecological happenings.

This event is open to all families and aimed at all ages. It is free to attend but advance booking is needed. All materials provided. If you have any access requirements for the session, please let us know by emailing learning@ikon-gallery.org.

This workshop is in association with The Big Draw. Ikon’s Learning Programme is supported by Cass Art. Please consider making a donation for this free activity. Ikon is a registered charity and your support helps us with everything we do.
