Alexandra Blum is thrilled to be returning to the Minesweeper Collective’s fascinating boat to lead her next drawing workshop from the deck of their Minesweeper in London on Sunday 14th August. Together you’ll use the dynamic relationship between the boat, surrounding tidal creek, decaying buildings and new constructions to focus on drawing movement through time and space. Suitable for all levels of experience. http://www.alexblum.co.uk/minesweeper_drawing_workshop_august_14_2016.htm Book by 27th July for your early bird discount!
