NATIONAL DRAWING DAY at the National Craft Gallery, Kilkenny 22 May 2010

Hello Everyone,

There is an exciting day of creative and alternative drawing workshops coming up at The National Craft Gallery - Crafts Council of Ireland - in Kilkenny!

National Drawing Day is held on the Saturday of the 22nd of May with the participation of galleries and various arts venues throughout the country.

To mark National Drawing Day the National Craft Gallery is holding a fun day of drawing workshops in the Castle Yard and National Craft Galleries. These drawing workshops will involve the use of textiles and stitch drawing and will form the basis for an exciting day of alternative drawing techniques and mark making.

ALL events are FREE

To book a place please contact Leslie Ryan at NCG on 056-7796151

I will be facilitating the following two workshops on the day:

Weaving Wonder
Explore drawing using recycled and reused materials in our weave drawing workshop for families. Participants will 'draw' colourful 'spaces', shapes and layers through the weaving of treads, wool, rafia and collected plant material.
Facilitated by artist Tunde Toth
Saturday May 22nd, 11am – 1 pm

A Stitch in Time
Create a mini masterpiece in our stitch-drawing workshop for teenagers.
Facilitated by artist Tunde Toth
Saturday May 22nd, 2pm – 4pm

Outdoor project - Make Your Mark

Hundreds of flags flying on long willow rods aligned to Tibetan prayer flags, said to promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom to both the flag planter and those in the vicinity, this is a unique opportunity to participate in a large, innovative installation in the Castle Yard by artists Marie Brett & Nic Piper.
Each flag bearer will be invited to draw their personal auspicious symbol, invocation, prayer or animal totem directly onto the flag before planting it into the ground, joining the larger community of intentions. Transitory in nature, the artwork will reflect a moments contemplation, an intention or wish, carried by the wind.
Saturday May 22nd, 12pm – 4pm, The Castle Yard

Not So Still Life
Bring along your sketchbook and do some observational drawing of the work in the Irish Craft Portfolio. Self guided.
Saturday May 22nd, all day
