FREE workshop exploring drawing portraits of children

The Thrive Archive workshop‘The weans just won’t sit still!’ Despite the lure of thruppence for the cinema or a new comic to read Joan’s young models found it difficult to hold a pose for long. She had to work fast and if you have ever tried to draw your children or your grandchildren you will understand the challenges Joan faced trying to capture a fleeting expression or a shy smile.

Join artists from The Thrive Archive for a 90-minute workshop ‘After Eardley’ and explore the joy of drawing portraits of children at speed. Simply bring a photo of a ‘wee one’ to inspire you and an old shirt or apron to wear. The 90-minute workshops are free and we provide all the materials. more

Sophia Ann West at Flamingosaurus Rex

Sophia WestLaunching Friday 10th February, Flamingosaurus Rex is proud to host the presentation of a new body of work by Sophia Ann West.

An exploration of colour, tone and dimension, from canvas to glass – the exhibition might best be described as a journey of encapsulation.

That most evocative of nature’s moods, the sunset, is Sophia’s inspiration; canvas the vehicle by which it takes shape. Pockets of colour and form are then captured and extruded, reborn into their native dimension by a process of transmutation at the hands of the glass artist. more
