Wax Resist Wonders

Join us for our first Workshop Wednesday of the summer, which takes inspiration from Henry Moore's famous Shelter Drawings.

Henry Moore's most famous drawings are those that he made during in World War 2, when he was commissioned by the War Commission to visit the public air raid shelters that people had set up in the London Underground. One of the techniques Moore used in these atmospheric artworks was wax resist drawing. Join in with our workshop and discover how wax crayons and colour wash can be used to create effective art. Explore how Moore used silhouettes and perspectives to add depth to his drawings.

Workshop Wednesdays are suitable for all ages. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Entry included in your admission ticket. Drop-in from 12 - 4pm, no booking necessary.
