Blindfolded Drawing!
Have you ever tried drawing in the dark? In this workshop we’ll close our eyes and use our other senses to create drawings of the objects in front of us. What are they made of? Are they heavy or light, rough or smooth? Expect weird and wondrous results! Family workshop suitable for ages 4+. Free, no booking required.
