Land Of The Fanns Drawing Workshops
August 17 @ 08:00 - 17:00
Land of the Fanns is searching for 100 stories about the landscape, its people and history and is running free drawing workshops with Kinetika
Do you have stories about the place where you live? Are there ancient buildings with fascinating histories? Are there woods full of mystery and legends? Does your favourite walk pass through land rich in tales and characters? Then the Land of the Fanns team wants to hear from you. Working with renowned Purfleet-based arts organisation Kinetika, the Land of the Fanns Landscape Partnership Project is asking local people and communities to identify and share 100 stories gathered across the Land of the Fanns area. These stories will be written up, illustrated, recorded and eventually turned into 100 silk flags. The flags and stories will form part of a celebratory Walking Arts Festival planned for late spring 2020.
Over this summer 2019, the Land of the Fanns are collecting stories and everyone is invited to share theirs. During August, Kinetika is running free drawing workshops to help explore the stories from the landscape of the Land of the Fanns, aiming to inspire memories about people’s connection to the Land of the Fanns landscape.
The drawing workshops are led by professional artist Jo Beal, who will provide top tips and techniques to help you reflect on and capture your experience of the locations and your personal connection to the landscape. No previous drawing experience is necessary. The workshops take place on 3rd, 4th and 17th August at various locations:
