Eye to Pencil recently launched as a drawing studio and collaborative project to explore how drawing can enable our thinking process, connecting us to our visual experience and surroundings. The studio is inter-professional and cross-disciplinary and set up as an exciting platform for drawing, discussion, skills exchange and creative exploration.

The next Guest Series Talk will be Rebecca Jewell and Sandy Ross Sykes on drawing in relation to Natural History. Then a drawing Workshop led by Tom Robertshaw on conceptualising structures.

Eye to Pencil's next drawing course will be working with pens, brushes, inks and watercolour in Wet Materials on Tuesdays mornings, starting 26 October.

We have scheduled a series of guest talks and workshops led by friends of Eye to Pencil who will discuss what drawing means to them personally and professionally. Our first speakers have backgrounds in film, engineering, botany, music, textiles and illustration (as well as drawing…).



Eye to Pencil's core aim is to encourage people to draw, and to gain confidence and fluency in expressing their ideas visually. Participants come from a range of backgrounds, with various levels of skill. We offer workshops as well as courses, and a weekly drop-in space.
