Drawing Upon the Senses with Alison Carlier, Leith Hill Place, Surrey

  • South East, London
  • crafts, combined arts, visual arts
  • Julie Hoyle


Alison will be running a day long work-shop Drawing upon the Senses out and about in the hills, fields and woods surrounding Leith Hill Place. The day will include both shorter and longer drawing exercises that home in on the act of looking/seeing/listening within the landscape and the role of the tactile/kinaesthetic in mark making.

A Jerwood Drawing Prize winner, Alison's art practice focuses on the relationship between sound, language and drawing and how these might be internally visualised, experienced or felt. She is a guest tutor for the resident artists at Leith Hill Place, Mary Branson, Penny Green and Julie Hoyle, and their choice for this interesting and immersive day of drawing. If you would like to join them or need further information, email or call 07982 445041

£50 including a cream tea!

26th April 10am – 4pm

Leith Hill Place, Leith Hill Lane, Dorking RH5 6LY
