Free, but please book via Eventbrite

Make space in your life for this creative, artist led workshop for adults. Adults don’t often get the chance to play enough but artists are brilliant at being playful and we want to share this more.

Artist Daksha Patel is interested in investigating the link between art and science, and how unobtainable qualities such as light can be harnessed and used in artistic practices such as drawing.

Daksha’s ‘Light Drawings’ are produced with pin pricks on paper to allow spots of light to shine through, creating delicate, projected drawings.

Over the next 3 Make space sessions you can experiment with some of the techniques Daksha uses in her work. Inspired by works in our Modern Japanese Design exhibition in the Design Gallery, Daksha invites you to the first session to explore light and shadow by creating your own pin prick drawings using light boxes.


The event is free but please reserve a space on Eventbrite.
